This was my second wooden boxes project dedicated to jewellery. The client saw my first project ( https://artrenouvelable.carbonmade.com/projects/6024614 ) and wanted the same for his company with his own logo, a flower . He wanted the project to be on line with the spirit of his company, mixing tradition and technology. What he liked in the project was the materials used, a nice wood for the packaging, leather and precious metals. The main difficulty was to find enough wood, nice and dry in order to produce the boxes that would be offered to the client’s customers, Lawyer and notaires. He liked it so much that he finally decided to give me some more work with cufflinks also packed in wood.

What’s Unique?
Each peace of wood is different from one another ( size, color, shape, which makes it unique. I personally never saw this kind of packaging before. The way I got the wood, collected from the parcs of Barcelona is also unique.
