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.


Either forming as large single crystals or aggregates of microscopic crystals, quartz is an abundant mineral in the earth's crust, in a profusion of colour, patterns, and optical effects. Smoky quartz is a particularly delicate shade for this distinguished gemstone, with its subtle and sophisticated brown lustre. Amethyst, citrine and rose quartz are all varieties of quartz.
