Cassandra's Whorl design is inspired by the Japanese Whorl pattern seen on the roof tops of temples and buildings all over Japan and which represents the Spirits of the Gods. Cassandra pierced out the whirling trinity shape, giving the design her signature 'air space' which she then adapted to work as bracelets, earrings and pendants. From the Journey to Japan.
Whorl silver earring pendant to hang from hoop earrings to be worn on Astrea hoops. 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.
