"La Chaîne d'Ancre" necklace by Helena Tang Lim

Updated: May 12

The necklace "La Chaine d'Ancre" was designed by Helena Tang-Lim exclusively for Olympia Bead Retreat June 2024.

Chaîne d'ancre or anchor chain refers to the component that attaches the anchor to the boat. Anchor chains are one of the most crucial components of boats. They play a crucial role in keeping the vessel in position, especially in choppy waters. The chain acts as a robust link between the anchor and the vessel, ensuring the stability and safety of the boat.

It's in line with this that anchor jewelry often stands for hope, steadfastness, salvation, stability, tranquility, security and good luck.

Inspired by the components of the anchor chain, La Chaîne d'Ancre epitomizes its values. It is big and bold and just like the anchor chain. It's made from flexible links of cubic right angle weave. Suspended from the “anchor chain” is not an anchor, but a large and equally bold rhinestone which swings freely from a “shackle”. The toggle clasp is formed with a chain link with a double closure perfectly centering the clasp at the back of the neck. A very comfortable necklace to wear while remaining very stable around your neck.
