This project was close to the heart, literally! Commissioned by a client who was saved by the installation of a pig's heart valve, she wanted to commemorate the life of the animal who saved hers. This necklace shows off the skill of piercing and sawing in metal. A low-tech technique that is sadly under-utilized in these days of mass production, it is simply a design, a miniature hand held saw and a drill bit. The possibilities of designing using this technique are truly infinite, yet it is rare these days to see such intricacy.
