Mounted in titanium, this naturalistically modelled feather brooch is incredibly light for its size. The element titanium, being extremely light and strong, has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal but, due to its physical qualities, is an exceptionally demanding material to work with and therefore better known for its high-technological applications in the aerospace, military and medical industries. The advent of titanium jewellery is a major development in the history of jewellery as it allows the designer to reach new levels of size and creativity. Weighing only slightly over 32.0 grams, this beautiful and delicate piece is as light as a feather!
