pip keane design date

Welcome to the Pip Keane design date.  This is the first edition of design date which we will send to you from time to time when we have news to share and designs to inspire you.

pip keane design is online

Not only are Pip’s designs constantly evolving, so too is our business.  We decided it was high time to move our high street store to an online store and make it even easier for you to find that perfect piece. We are excited to announce that all of Pip’s designs are available at our very own shop www.pkd.com.au. We’ve made it really easy for you to search and shop online in our store.  The only hard part is deciding what to buy?


bubble along

Can you guess the inspiration for the bubble along collection?  Yes, that’s right her series of intricate tea strainers (pictured below) led to the development of the bubble collections.

Pip loves to map out beautiful patterns and you can see how the patterns in the strainer are replicated in the bubble collection. The blackened finish in the bubble along collection acts as a backdrop while the pebble designs were also inspired by the design process at work while she silversmithed the strainers.

pebble road cuff

So often a design is inspired by a client.  This was the case with the pebble road cuff which then formed the basis of a whole collection.  Pip’s client wanted a stand out arm piece of quite grand dimensions.  She briefed Pip on her bespoke piece and after completing it, Pip realised there was more to explore within that technique and hence the birth of the pebble road collection.


We hope you enjoyed Pip Keane’s design date and welcome your comments and feedback. Please email me at pip@pkd.com.au with suggestions for the next edition?

When not thinking up new designs, Pip loves to get out and about. Here she shares some of her favourite Melbourne haunts.

Pizza Religion Logo

If you take your pizza seriously, then Pip recommends you visit Pizza Religion in Hawthorn East.  Definitely not traditionalists when it comes to pizza, the team create toppings such as Italian Pork & Veal Meatball Pizza topped with a Cherry Tomato, Pecorino, Basil & Balsamic Salad through to dessert pizzette’s such as the Pecan & Vanilla Pizzette with Caramel Ice Cream and Butterscotch Sauce. Truly indulgent and truly good.
