Mashrabiya Trellis

The Islamic love of geometry is echoed in the Mashrabiya screens created on their travels wherever they went. Geometry builds on simple shapes of circles, squares and rectangles turning them into puzzling patterns. And through the spaces in between, it is possible to create endlessly varying vistas for the eye to wonder at.

As I walked from palace to palace around Morocco, the trellis pattern was repeated in each one: different and yet the same. I made gold sections of the squares and created earrings and rings set with diamonds, turquoises and lapis lazuli.

Ruby

One of the rarest precious gemstones, rubies are famed for their resplendent red lustre and strong, emotional hues. Radiating love, health, and physical strength, this powerful corundum gem absorbs natural light, symbolically soaking up the powers of the sun.

The birthstone for July and a celebratory gemstone for 40th wedding anniversaries, rubies blaze with strength and passion, protecting you from negativity, misfortune, and evils.
