An afternoon spent outside Beijing took Cassandra to the Great Wall of China. With a picnic and sketchbook in hand she set off to climb and walk along the wall at Mutianyu. As she sat and gazed at the undulating 'brick serpent'( that was built in 1386) snaking across the countryside, she sketched out her design. A design she was later to deeply engrave into the oval of cufflinks and enamel in greens, reds and blues. From the journey to China.
Great wall of China double ended 9ct yellow gold. Each cufflink measures approximately 17x12mm. Personalisation available.
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.
