Nature and Design: Jewelry by Britta Boekmann

Britta Boekmann is an industrial and jewelry designer from Australia. Her most recent designs combine smooth pieces of coloured resin with found wood, creating pendants that showcase the intersection of nature and design.

 

I love Boekmann’s pendant designs – the artist does a wonderful job of preserving the slight imperfections and knots in the wood, while refining it down enough to make each piece clean and smooth with slightly rounded edges. The contrast between the translucent resin and the earthy wood highlights the beauty of each individual material.
