The Lure of Civilisation
Inspired by how the Easter Islander’s used ropes to move the Moai statues, the collection explores how we tie down the objects and structures that matter to us, carry them with us and in so doing become tied down ourselves.
Lassos, loops and lengths of rope are arranged in forms that allude to the tension between weight and gravity. Earrings and ear cuffs arc and curve dramatically toward the ground. Bracelets unravel. Hairpins coil and twist. All the while pearls sit serenely, in a state of calm.
The hair pin is handcrafted from recycled sterling silver and plated with 18ct yellow gold.
The hair pin is available in one size only.
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.
