Meet Justin Bobyn, who grew up in Montreal & now resides in Sydney where he completed a Medical Degree at UNSW. Now an Orthopaedics surgeon, he spends his spare time as a jewellery maker! Yes the perfect mix of creative genius overload. His first design a customised bracelet was a collaboration with designer, Patrick Johnson. It started from the idea to have a wrist bone shape, and then he kicked around the idea of personlised screws as initials which he makes by hand. So what’s next you say, well he’s just designed a bone replacement implant for children. Go JDB !
