The fractured wood jewelry of Marcel Dunger, a designer based in Germany, is much more inspired than fashionable, an impression people might not get at first glance. The line of wood jewelry takes after a tree's ability to heal itself. The fragmented material is softened around the edges thanks to the use of natural resin, which adds a high fashion quality to each piece.

Dubbed Manufract, the fractured wood jewelry take on the form of chic pendants, earrings and rings. The cedar materials are continued in transparent blues and pinks and secured to golden chains and fasteners that give them even more of a luxe finish. Made by hand, the wood jewelry would make accessories for the spring and summer.
