The avant garde and modernist style of Robert Burle Marx the great Brazilian landscape architect is so evident in the black and white mosaic pavements along the beaches of Rio. Cassandra was captivated by these extrordinary designs that seemed to her to echo similar pavements in Lisbon. After many early morning walks along the beach, she created Copacabana's waves into a cuff: the black mosaic part of the pattern became golden waves and the white mosaic, Cassandra interpreted as 'air space'. From the journey to Brazil.
Copacabana cuff in 9ct yellow gold. The bracelet measures approximately 64mm.
Cassandra herself designs all her jewels and works closely with her stone cutters and craftsmen throughout the process from design through to creation including on her bespoke projects.
Ever in search of the unusual and rare, Cassandra travels the world to source beautiful gemstones, either in the rough or cut form.
The craftsman works as an artist recreating the design in metal. The jewel is then mounted, assayed, polished and set.
