Mashrabiya Trellis

The Islamic love of geometry is echoed in the Mashrabiya screens created on their travels wherever they went. Geometry builds on simple shapes of circles, squares and rectangles turning them into puzzling patterns. And through the spaces in between, it is possible to create endlessly varying vistas for the eye to wonder at.

As I walked from palace to palace around Morocco, the trellis pattern was repeated in each one: different and yet the same. I made gold sections of the squares and created earrings and rings set with diamonds, turquoises and lapis lazuli.

Chrome Diopside

The brilliant, and often emerald green colour of chrome diopside is due to chromium and is a rarely known gemstone often found in Russia. A calcium magnesium silicate with a low hardness of 5-6 on Mohs scale it is best set as a pendant to avoid it being scratched.
