This class is dedicated to the memory of a dear friend of Cliff’s who was a sailor and amazing performing artist. The bracelet is based on an old nautical anchor chains and an Hérmes piece of jewelry Cliff was mesmerized by. Upon researching nautical chains, he discovered that anchor chains have a distinct center bar that prevents them from tangling. He included that bar in his piece and embellished it with over 2 gross of Swarovski crystals, over 150 Swarovski pearls and precious metal plated seed beads. The name “Ancres au Soleil” literally translates from French as "Anchors in the Sun” as the luscious bracelet sparkles like the water droplets on the chain as the sun shines brightly on them at sea.
