Peacemakers Neckplate by Kayfin Peacemakers Neckplate by Kayfin
Designed to meet the ideas of a client.

It reminds me of some sort of neckplating, which is a little ironic as doves are associated with peace, and not war. I suppose even peacemakers should wear protective collarbone wear occasionally.

Titanium with Sterling silver jumprings, chain & clasp.


I went through about 18 sawblades to cut that out. Sometimes I'd get a huge long run out of one blade, to have about 3 break on me in the course of cutting one piece. It was quite random, and frequently less than complimentary words were said to the Sawblade fairy. :)

Thank you! (It also fits neatly with needing to obscure the identity of the model.)

I have yet to saw titanium, I'll use the sheer thank you. Fabulous piece though. You could do an awesome tropical bird if you anodized the wings in different colours!

:) I'm a sucker for saw piercing. My first self-designed jewellery project for college involved a ridiculous amount of saw pierced negative space for someone who was still working out which way the teeth needed to face. But it was a great learning curve, and it's now something I really enjoy. Even with titanium.

I've got some ideas for coloured titanium pieces inspired by Australian parrots, but that's going to have to wait till the new year.

I love the size of that piece, most people seem afriad to do larger pieces.

It's possibly to do with material costs - to do that in silver would have been expensive (and heavy). Unless you've got someone paying for the materials up front, it's a significant outlay for a small-time craftsperson.

For me it's also mostly about inspiration. I tend to wear bite-sized jewellery, so that's what I usually end up making. However, if an idea (like this one) comes along that is a bold and dominant piece in context to the body, I won't shy from making it. I particularly enjoyed designing it :)
