Robert Burle Marx was a brilliant plantsman and landscape architect born in Brazil in 1909. His avant garde and modernist style is so evident in the black and white mosaic pavements along the beaches of Rio (when Cassandra later visited Lisbon and marvelled at its similar pavements, she wondered if Burle Marx had been inspired by seeing them). Cassandra was captivated by these geometric, optical illusion patterns, that seemed to dance of their own accord along stretches of Rio's beach. The Ipanema pattern was particularly challenging to interpret in metal because of the position of so many 'air spaces' in the design, yet in a way this added to the final cuff jewel. From the journey to Brazil.

Craftmanship and sourcing

Designed by Cassandra

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.

Gemologist

Ever in search of the unusual and rare, Cassandra travels the world to source beautiful gemstones, either in the rough or cut form.

Crafted to perfection

The craftsman works as an artist recreating the design in metal. The jewel is then mounted, assayed, polished and set.
