Large Ilex 16 inch long necklace in 9ct yellow gold with logo tag and 13mm trigger clasp. Inspired by the Moroccan Sea Holly (Ilex) plant (also known as Eryngium). From the Journey to Morocco.
The ridged spines of the Moroccan Sea Holly (Ilex in Latin) link one blue flower to another creating a chain of flowers amongst the prickles of the silvery grey-green leaves. Tough and drought resistant it has survived for centuries in Morocco's harsh, dry climates.
The rounded ends of the Ilex chain-links echo the flower heads Strong and resilient; the Ilex chain can be all of one metal or a mixture of metals. A unisex chain for the new era.
All Cassandra Goad Jewellery is designed and made in our workshops in London.
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.
