Peacock

There are peacocks everywhere in India: decorating palaces in niches, as carriages and in wall paintings. So no wonder I was inspired to create a peacock brooch and earrings.

I always think the magical part of a feather is the ruffle, that subtle movement of the silken 'cloak' that covers birds of any feather. I was inspired too by a delicate peacock brooch given by Empress Eugenie to Princess Victoria Mary around 1893 where the interlocking barbs seemed to have a delicate ripple. In the workshop we recreated this effect by 'stringing' the diamond set barbs along the vane down the centre, allowing a little movement side to side. From the Journey to India.

Sapphire

Sapphire occurs in Sri Lanka, Australia and Myanmar and varies in its often velvet like colour from colourless to blue, pink, yellow, green and purple hues. Cassandra often finds unusual colours and cuts on her travels and she particularly loves the rarer green sapphires. Sapphire, the stone is associated with wisdom and is the birthstone for September.
