The Shipka pass itself crosses the main ridge of the Balkan Mountains near the village of Shipka in Bulgaria. Cassandra remembers being told the story of the defense of this important pass (now within the Bulgarka Nature Park) when she was in Bulgaria and designed this cross with its delicate beaded detail to echo the stony path through the mountains. From the journey to Bulgaria.

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.
