Mini Burr Wood Slices for Wood and Resin Jewellery
Mini wood burr slices in varies sizes to create your own wood and resin jewellery. The wood burrs are all around 7mm deep and recommended to be used with moulds that are minimum 7mm deep (unless you don't mind sanding away extra wood). You can also make your own mould by using tape around the wood to create a cavity for pouring resin in.
The largest burr is around 6.8cm long by 2.5cm wide and the smallest burr is around 2.5cm by 2.5cm. If you find them too big, or you wish to go for a funky shape, you can cut them using a wood saw or jewellers saw.
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.
Available in 3 configurations:
Set of 1 large burr & 1 small burr
Set of 2 fairly large burrs
Set of 5 assorted burrs (A mix of small to large burrs)
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.
