Zellije

"The palaces of Marrakech and Fez sprinkled a mystic moorish charm over me. The ornate sculptural doorways, the colourful tiles and Zellije star shaped outlines, the courtyards of ripening fruit, and the tinkling of clear water from the fountains were both seductive and soothing at the same time. I spent hours looking out at them, sketching in the shade.

As I arrived at the palace of El Bahia in Marrakesh the craftsmen were painstakingly repairing damaged Zellije and I watched as it was carefully recreated. I closed my eyes and saw those same patterns on the workshop bench in gold and silver, and filled with the colour of stones."

Diamond

Diamond- from the Greek 'adamas' means the unconquerable and so it is, being the hardest of all gemstones. From yellowish to green, red, pink and blue, diamonds are found in all colours in South Africa, Australia, as well as Namibia, Russia and China.
