Mashrabiya Trellis are used in Moroccco to hide the women from prying eyes, as well as to provide shade in the hot stone courtyards. The intricate lattice of the trellis inspired Cassandra's geometric design, the shapes and patterns from the Moroccan Trellis being expertly transformed into delicate golden squares. From the journey to Morocco.
Mashrabiya Trellis earring pendants in 9ct yellow gold set with cabochon malachite, lapis lazuli and turquoise and diamonds on Astrea 18ct yellow gold and diamond hoops. The earrings, including hoops, measure approximately 45x13mm. These earrings are part of Cassandra's interchangeable collection.
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.
