Cassandra was inspired by the myriad stone doorways (Potre Ouvrant) of Morocco revealing inner courtyards, and by the carved wooden doorways she discovered that open onto gardens of succulents where scented jasmines tumbled into mosaic fountains. The sense of the door swivelling seemed to her that it was revealing new vistas, new beginnings, the start of something new. From the journey to Morocco.

Cassandra herself designs all her jewels and works closely with her stone cutters and craftsmen throughout the process from design through to creation including on her bespoke projects.
Ever in search of the unusual and rare, Cassandra travels the world to source beautiful gemstones, either in the rough or cut form.
The craftsman works as an artist recreating the design in metal. The jewel is then mounted, assayed, polished and set.
