UK artist Anthony Roussel combines 3-D software and high tech laser cutting techniques to transform the traditional material of wood into these original bracelets. The resulting jewelry is modern in its design, with a flash of inspiration from topographical maps. The darkening of the edges is a consequence from the laser burning its way through the wood, adding to the three dimensional effect.

These pieces are not only wearable objects, but could be simply put on display to enjoy.

Implications - The unconventional jewelry marries tradition and modern innovation, morphing traditional materials like wood into crafty, one of a kind pieces using new forms of technology that modify the existing craft.
