Suu Kyi - Rose Hairpin
Solid Sterling (925) Eco Andina Silver :
Fundacion EcoAndina - Argentina
The Rose Hairpin
A perfect finishing touch for a beautiful bride, bridesmaid, wedding guest, ladies day attendee or prom goer.
The stem of our solid silver hairpin is hollow, to allow it to carry a fresh cut or silk rose.
Silk roses can be made to request in almost any colour / colour combination and ordered together with your hairpin if you select 'Hairpin and Silk Rose' from the drop down menu above. The roses are handmade and hand dyed by my friend Svetlana in London. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and details of the colour(s) you would like. (If you can please attach a photograph of a similar rose / colours as this will help us get the colours correct.)
This hairpin will slide gently into your hair causing no damage.
The silver used to make this hairpin is sourced from the Fundación EcoAndina in the Andes Mountains, Argentina. It is mined without the used of chemicals and fairly traded, both of these criteria are 3rd party certified by the Jeweltree Foundation.
This piece was inspired by one of my heroines - Aung San Suu Kyi. This inspirational and beautiful soul always wears fresh flowers in her hair, it has become one of her signatures.
I wanted to create a hairpin that was able to carry a fresh (or silk) flower that could also be a momento of a bride's special day.
This design - the Rose - is the first piece in the Suu Kyi collection. Each hairpin will be hollow and have the leaves of the flower that inspired it. There will also be lapel pins for the groom to enable him to match if so desired.
When this hairpin is not being used, it can be placed in a vase for ornamental purposes.
