Marcel Dunger is a German product designer who uses pieces of broken maple wood combined with coloured resin to create these beautiful pieces of jewellery.

His process consists of the resin being poured onto a larger piece of broken wood and after the hardening process; the piece is then machined into smaller pieces of jewelry. He uses a Bio-resin, which is either biodegradable or compostable, making them more energy-efficient to manufacture and emit less emission during production. This makes them a good alternative to traditional polyurethane based plastics.

“Visibly incorporating repairs into new or improved objects”

The brightly coloured resin paired with the maple wood creates a rather striking attraction. This delicate collection of jewellery shows us the possibilities that can be created when rethinking the word ‘waste’.
