Birch Plywood Jewellery


This is a range of rather unusual and bulky jewellery by Bethan Laura Wood. The “link” range is laser cut from 3mm birch plywood. She makes the most of her materials by minimizing waste in the design. The designer says “The range is made from a repeated series of links, which decrease in scale, allowing for all subsequent links to be cut from the space inside the largest.”. She didn’t have to go far for her inspiration; the octagonal links were inspired by the joining mechanism of her drawing board. The links are used to form necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings and key rings. She embraces the burn marks left by the processes and uses it as a feature of the jewellery. The splashes of colour on selected links help to create the bold, bright and playful look.
