Cassandra's inspiration for her Nile Lily designs comes from the waterlilies floating in the sacred lake at Karnak. The temperamental, waxy and 'endive' like shaped petals of waterlilies, the symbol of Upper Egypt, have always fascinated Cassandra. In her workshop she recreated this design in layers of petals to be as close as possible to the design of nature. From the Journey to Egypt.
Nile Lily halos in 9ct yellow gold set and Theresa 9ct yellow gold blue topaz studs. 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.
