Cassandra's inspiration for her Snowflake design comes from an afternoon spent inside the Forbidden City in China ( as well as from her lifelong fascination with snowflakes). Tall latticed red doors of one of the inner temples seemed to her to have a snowflake like pattern. In the workshop she recreated the delicate snowflake design with the expert help of her stone setter, adding extra detail to make the design seem almost ' light and fluffy' like a real snowflake. From the journey to China.
Snowflake 18ct white gold earrings set with diamonds 0.6cts and millegrain set.
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.
