PRODUCT STORY
Michael says: Nature is constantly being engineered and constructed in contemporary urban life. As a reaction and highlight of this process, I design neck pieces that both highlight the constructed aspect of each piece through bold lines of bright, fluorescent colors wherever parts join. Wood, commonly seen as a natural element, thus takes on a slightly more manufactured, composite feel, while retaining some of it's warmth and earthiness.
MATERIALS
recycled wood, acrylic, wood glue, sealer, brass

We think Michael's splash of fluorescent coloring on his Wood Structure Composite Necklace is a bright idea! Would you agree that this is a bold piece?

The organic feel to the piece is especially welcoming within the cold/technologically driven context of the world in which we live.

This does look unqiue, but it doesn't look like it would last very long.

I like the concept and I want to like this necklace really I do...But the glue globs totally destroy the look. If it were sanded and refined a bit I would really like this.
