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.

Tourmaline

Tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese term 'turamali' meaning 'stone of mixed colours'. Tourmaline gemstones can be found in almost every colour including pink, red, green, blue, colourless and multi-coloured, making it one of Cassandra's favourite gemstones. Perhaps because of its myriad of colours it is the birthstone for October when the autumnal leaves fall in a cacophony of colour.
