The Berber's 'toothpicks' grow all over the Moroccan hillsides and roadsides. These Ammi Visnaga plants are tall tree-like fennel with ridged arms that open wide their slender fingers to the sun in spring and close them as if in prayer once they dry and let their seeds fly.

The Berber's are very fond of the long stems of the seed pod as they are the perfect length and thickness to use as toothpicks! I found these dries pods in bundles in the Medina and admired their fragility and golden beauty. I drew sketches of them as earring and pendants with the delicate toothpicks hanging from the base of the flower head.

Yellow Gold

Gold is a metal that Cassandra loves to work with, it takes a wonderful pátina with time. Cassandra has the skill of knowing which carat, strength and durability of gold to use, where stone setting is concerned, so that jewels last and look beautiful for generations. Sourcing gold and other metals responsibly from people who have the same ethical vision as herself is particularly important, and she encourages transformations from old unworn jewels in to new sparkling pieces. When receiving jewels from Cassandra Goad, you can be assured that only the highest quality gold is being used.
