The March of Progress - Gold Vermeil Hair Pin
With a subtle but graceful nod to the classic hair ribbon, The March of Progress is a relaxed hair accessory made from a series of loops and twists carefully positioned to invoke notions of the instability, and the unknowability, of our place in the world. Looks equally good pinned high or low over a messy pony tail

Collection Narrative:

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.

Product Care

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.
