Fenouil

The Berber's 'toothpicks' grow all over the Moroccan hillsides and roadsides. These Ammi Visnaga plants are tall tree-like fennel with ridged arms that open wide their slender fingers to the sun in spring and close them as if in prayer once they dry and let their seeds fly.

The Berber's are very fond of the long stems of the seed pod as they are the perfect length and thickness to use as toothpicks! I found these dries pods in bundles in the Medina and admired their fragility and golden beauty. I drew sketches of them as earring and pendants with the delicate toothpicks hanging from the base of the flower head.

Diamond

Diamond- from the Greek 'adamas' means the unconquerable and so it is, being the hardest of all gemstones. From yellowish to green, red, pink and blue, diamonds are found in all colours in South Africa, Australia, as well as Namibia, Russia and China.
