One of the most thrillingly beautiful Bermuda traditions is making a colourful tissue paper kite to fly on Good Friday. The craft is passed down between generations and is so important to our culture that the techniques are even taught in school. Nothing is as magical as seeing a sky full of stained glass window-like kites made from the thinnest tissue paper, string, and sticks, buzzing through the sky on Good Friday. The kite is one of the most charming symbols of Springtime in Bermuda.

This was my first design and the most challenging piece because I tend to favour flowy, organic shapes rather than geometric forms. At this stage, I was thinking about how much I liked using different coloured beach sands in my recent longtail ornament and showing off as much pink as I could in the kite's panels. I also wanted movement without fuss and determined that rather than a chain tail, which would hang straight and limp when not in motion, my signature "Melt"-style motif would be gorgeous hinged from the base. I chose to create a D-bail rather than add any more length to the design with a normal loop and ring bail. The textured hummers and flowery accent broke up the rigidity of the geometry in a Bermudaful way.

With little window panes for varying hues of pink sand, my kite sculpture took three attempts to get perfect! The frilly doily and sticks sit within the sand plane, the hummer hides the D-bail, and the signature Melt tail swings from the bottom of the piece.

Dimensions are 50 mm (h) x 18.7 mm (w) / 1.97 in x 0.74 in.

The secret to preventing tarnish on sterling silver is to keep it clean, store it sealed off from air, humidity and chemicals. Put your jewellery on after you have finished styling hair and makeup.  If the sterling does tarnish, use a silver polishing cloth or mild silver cleaner and dry thoroughly.  We highly recommend using "Goddard's Silver Dip" (which is available at Gorham's in Bermuda, or on Amazon worldwide) to keep your silver jewellery looking bright. Goddard's Silver Dip is great to use on our pink sand silver jewellery. Follow the instructions on the jar, and be sure to rinse the solution off entirely, dry your piece thoroughly, and if possible, store it in an air-tight ziplock bag when you are not wearing it.  

Your pink sand jewellery can be gently cleaned with water and hand soap and dried with a soft cloth. To protect against scratches, store your pink sand jewellery wrapped in tissue or cloth to protect it.  It's best to not submerge your Alexandra Mosher Studio Jewellery pieces in water for a long period of time. We recommend taking it off before bathing, showering, or swimming.  

Gently wash your pieces with gentle hand soap and an old toothbrush to remove dirt, rinse well and dry completely with a soft cloth. Maintain your jewellery’s shine by avoiding contact with agents such as perfume, lotion, makeup, hair & cleaning products. Always remove your jewellery before swimming and exercising. Store your gold jewellery in its pouch or lined box when you're not wearing it. If your design has prongs, please have them checked every year either by us or a jeweller in your area.
