Marcel Dunger Uses Resin To “Mend” Broken Pieces of Wood Into Jewelry

I’ve noticed an interesting trend of makers “mending” or completing pieces of wood with another material. I few weeks ago I wrote about Hilla Shamia creating table and benches out of wood and aluminum, and now I’ve run across the work of Marcel Dunger, who combines resin and wood to create brightly colored pieces of jewelry.

Broken maple which was poured into colored bioresin and then processed mechanically by hand. The decorative elements reach their maximum color fastness in sunlight and can be used as rings, pendants, earrings and other accessories.

It’s quite a simple concept, yet the brightly colored resin paired with the maple wood is an attractive combination that easily grabs your attention. This feels like it’s a sort of design intervention, an interesting way to re-use unwanted or damaged materials. It’ll be interesting to see if more projects like these start to pop up more and more.
