Ever fancied making wood and resin jewellery? Well now is your chance! 

Trimmed specifically to fit our Rectangular Flat Silicone Pendant Mould, this Shaped to Perfection Tiny Pendant Burr slots snugly into the pendant mould allowing you to create your own unique burr jewellery without the need for saws or drills. 

How?
  • After placing the burr into the mould, use Resin8 Slowcure Resin and your favourite transparent pigment to fill the pendant.
  • This mould takes approximately 3ml of resin to fill. 
  • Once dry, use Rejuven8 Wet and Dry Paper to smooth out any over-filled edges.
  • Once all lovely and smooth, simply paint on another layer of mixed resin.
  • Your glorious piece is complete! 
What's a burr? 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. 

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.
