Zellije

"The palaces of Marrakech and Fez sprinkled a mystic moorish charm over me. The ornate sculptural doorways, the colourful tiles and Zellije star shaped outlines, the courtyards of ripening fruit, and the tinkling of clear water from the fountains were both seductive and soothing at the same time. I spent hours looking out at them, sketching in the shade.

As I arrived at the palace of El Bahia in Marrakesh the craftsmen were painstakingly repairing damaged Zellije and I watched as it was carefully recreated. I closed my eyes and saw those same patterns on the workshop bench in gold and silver, and filled with the colour of stones."

Tanzanite

Pleochroism is rare in gemstones and it is this quality that makes the blue colour of tanzanite (due to the presence of vanadium) so extraordinary. Tanzanite is trichroic- showing blue, purple and yellow in different directions of light- making the blue colour richer and deeper in the naked eye. But this blue colour that Cassandra so loves to design with, comes at a price because the stones are fragile and should be worn with great care. The birthstone for December- it is a reminder of those wintery moonlit nights.
