Suburbs explores the way ideas about the suburbs can be communicated through the form of jewellery. Exploring myth, social history and autobiography, the collection sees the suburbs as a place of both regeneration and decay: where ideas simultaneously evolve and erode.
The piece is thoughtfully handcrafted in lilac resin. Earring posts and butterfly backs are made using recycled sterling silver and plated with 18ct yellow gold vermeil.
The earrings are available in one size only. The height of the piece is 39mm(1.54 inches), its width is 15mm(0.59 inches) and its depth is 34mm(1.34 inches).
When you love something, you don't throw it away or replace it. You mend it. We can lovingly renew and restore sterling silver and gold vermeil jewellery - just like my grandparent's mended my clothes for me when I was a child.
Renewing scratches and minor damage: Small scratches, broken posts, missing stones - these can also be easily repaired - so they can last a life time and become heirlooms.
Renewing: Completedworks gold vermeil plating is 3 mircons thick - which should mean the gold will last 2-3 years of regular wear. If it does become worn, we can offer an affordable and hassle-free replating service.
