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.

Garnet

From the Latin for grain 'granatum' -because of its rounded crystals and similarity to the red pomegranate seeds. The scientist in Cassandra has always been fascinated by this isomorphous series that gives rise to gems that are from colourless through all colours of the rainbow. With the power to give eternal happiness, health and wealth when worn it is not surprising that Kings and Queens have often worn garnets throughout history.
