In a world of manmade structures
coexisting with nature, it is sometimes difficult to find
harmony and balance.
The geometric shapes in this piece represent the
beauty of architectural structures juxtaposed with lush
The bracelet can be worn with the geometric clasp and
large rivoli on top of the wrist, or rotated to reveal the
luxurious crystal fringe.
In addition to the dichotomy of
the natural and artificial world in which we live, Cliff
wanted to pay homage to the first two beadweavers who
influenced him, Laura McCabe and Jean Power.
The top embellishments on the rivoli give tribute
to Lauraís style that first inspired Cliff to take up this
art form, and the geometry of the beaded triangle clasp is a
nod to Jeanís geometric work that prompted him to experiment
with contrasting beading styles. This piece combines peyote,
RAW, Herringbone and fringe stitching.
