The markets of Sicily (also known as Persephone's Isle) burst with colour, clamour and life. The mounds of glistening pomegranates have always called to Cassandra irresistibly, just as they did the Goddess Persephone who spent six months of the year in Hades because she ate the forbidden pomegranate seeds. Cassandra set her pomegranate 'seeds' of lapis lazuli, coral, pearls and turquoise in gold and silver as a reminder of the goddess Persephone and of Sicily. From the journey to Sicily.
Persephone bangle in 9ct yellow gold set with four lapis lazuli beads. This bracelet measures approximately 71mm.
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.
