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.

Citrine

Citrine is a gemmologist's gold. Pale stones remind Cassandra of white waterlillies, the brighter yellows of tumbles of Bansiae roses and the golden richer hues of autumnal dahlias. Natural citrines can be found in Brazil, Spain and Madagascar. As November's birthstone they are said to give energy and inspiration, calm tempers and soothe anger.
