For your 20th Wedding Anniversary, forgo Ceramics and give a
unique gift with a jewel from Cassandra Goad's
China collection. Discover highlights from the
collection below including Qin & Han,
Temple of Heaven and Star
The Emperor of China was regarded as the son of Heaven,
responsible to the celestial power for success or failure of his
government. The Ming Dynasty built the Temple of Heaven in about
1530, and it was the detail of circles and squares that decorate
the roof edge of the temple that inspired these earrings.
Star Anise is inspired by a spring garden
design. In the beautiful gardens of Suzhou in China, walls cascade
with wisteria flowers, and cherry blossoms fall like confetti over
the small pools, and through intricate open 'windows' intriguing
vistas are framed. It was one of these 'windows' that inspired the
Star Anise design....
The Terracotta Army was built by the subjects of Qin Shi Huang
to protect the first emperor of the Qin Dynasty in the afterlife.
When several pairs of Qin & Han earrings are
lined up, they evoke images of rows of warriors, paired up
similarly. The juxtaposition of colours in each earring creates
unique combinations; vivid orange fire opal pairs with a rich, pink
tourmaline & a bright yellow citrine is complimented by the
beautiful blue of an aquamarine.
