The Greeks first arrived in Sicily to the island of Ortigia from the south. Here the maze of streets is best enjoyed in the early morning light when the town is quiet and undisturbed by man or motorcar. With the streets deserted, the doorways and windows only have spiders as visitors. For Cassandra this is the best time of day......... and she can enjoy the freedom to wander pensively with a head full of designs. It was on one of these mornings that Cassandra spied some wrought iron work in a small dusty window and sketched out her Ortigia link. From the journey to Sicily.
Ortigia long silver necklace with 5 silver sections randomly positioned along the length. The necklace measures 35".
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.
