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.

Amethyst

Amethyst traditionally worn to instil a sober and serious mind, is the stone worn by bishops, the colour echoing their purple robes. Alluvial deposits in Brazil, Madagascar, Zambia and Uruguay are the source of most amethyst, the birthstone for February. Cassandra likes to juxtapose it with rubies and aquamarine or green African garnets.
