BoldB is a small jewelry brand based in Melbourne, Australia. It is owned by Industrial Designer Britta Boeckmann and her brother-in-law Michael Davidson.
We have spent the last six months developing a new design concept, and the result is our Aqua Collection. Each piece of the collection is carefully crafted out of compacted beach sand and aqua blue resin.
The collection is inspired by Australia’s beautiful aquatic surroundings – we are blessed with some of the best beaches and water stretches in the world. The idea emerged after a flight over the Great Barrier Reef. Admiring the stunning coastal landscape led to working on a process to mimic a bird’s eye view of various ocean terrains, expressed through topographic layers. Each item in the collection draws its name from the body of water it resembles.
We have used a combination of modern and traditional design processes to create the collection. We began by working with CAD software and 3D printers to produce prototypes. In contrast, the final pieces are carefully crafted from scratch and delicately sanded and polished by hand to achieve the desired shape and high-gloss finish.
Given the water theme of our collection, for every item sold we are supporting water.org with funds to help provide one year of safe water to one person in need. Water.org is an international nonprofit organization that has positively transformed millions of lives around the world through access to safe water and sanitation.
