Quattro Canti

The Quattro Canti crossroads in the centre of Palermo are unlike any other in the world. Majestic, triumphant and beautifully designed and decorated, they are still the heart and axis of this ancient city with views to the points of the compass. Four basins festooned in agrumi lead upwards to the four saints and further up to the four kings. It was the festoons of fruit that inspired my halos and wound them around my halos.

Blue Topaz

Topaz is an Aluminum fluoro- hyrdroxyl- silicate that occurs in large crystals mostly in Brazil. Its slightly turquoise blue hue, is similar to that of aquamarine. It is perhaps this colour that makes it the stone symbolising friendship and love, honest and fidelity. It is the birthstone for November.
