CHARCOAL 

Having created charcoal over a campfire by using beer cans to 'cook'
the timber in an oxygen-free atmosphere, we became fascinated by this fragile material which when fractured and splintered resembles glistening jewels. 

These charcoal fragments are immersed in a resin bath within a vacuum chamber to replace the air with the hard resin to harden and protect the material, which also stops it marking clothes and skin. Brass chain and fine tube are used to create jewellery pieces.
