Burr Wood and Silicone Pendant Mould Set - No Drill
Now you can make your own wood and resin jewellery without the need for saws or drills. Each set consists of an oversized pendent mould (no-drill) and a matching wood burr that is specifically trimmed and shaped to perfection to fit the corresponding mould. The wood burr will fit snugly into the mould of 7mm depth.
Available in 4 different shapes:
Rectangle (3.5cm x 7cm)
Elongated Hexagon (3.8cm x 6.8cm)
Abstract (4.2cm x 6.5cm)
Round (6cm diameter)
Due to the nature of the product, the grain and colour of the burr wood will be unique and different for every piece. Any markings or imperfections in the wood are part of and integral to the character of the natural material.
Our burrs are harvested from Australian Mallee (eucalyptus). The wood is richly coloured (compared to the non burred wood) and comes up a treat when polished. They are robust, stable and hard and can be polished with danish oil, a polyurethane spray or even a thin layer of resin.
A burr (or burl if you're from across the pond) is a tree growth which has caused the wood to grow in a deformed way. Usually this is from an injury to the tree or a virus, fungus or disease. This means that the wood is full of small knots and therefore looks very attractive when worked, and their waney edge retained. Burrs are often highly prized and are sought after for use in furniture, sculpture, art and jewellery.
