Last Friday night, in the midst of all of the excitement over the launch of the America's Cup World Series races in Bermuda, there was a quieter launch of different kind as jewellery designer Alexandra Mosher released the 2015 version of her Splash Collection ornament. Previous ornaments have had a Bermudian theme and included a sand dollar and the rare murex shell. This year's design is based on the traditional Bermudian fitted dinghy, a small sailboat used locally for racing the history of which dates all the way back to the 17th century. Featuring six tiny sailors, the boat is cast in Sterling silver and its characteristic triangular sails are set in pink Bermuda sand. The ornament can also be worn as a statement pendant and comes hung on either a piece of hand-torn silk chiffon ribbon or an Omega chain.
