At Cassandra Goad we offer a unique Bespoke journey, and unlike anywhere else it is truly bespoke for you.
As a gemmologist, the chemical composition and properties of gemstones have always fascinated Cassandra. Ever in search of unusual and rare, she travels the world to source beautiful gemstones, either in the rough or cut form. The ideal marriage of gemstone and metal needs to be carefully cosidered.
With raw materials considered, the design process begins to take shape. Together, with Cassandra, rough sketches are made of various ideas which may lead, for more intricate pieces, to a precise drawing and suggestions from the workshop of how best to set the gemstones
The craftsman works as an artist recreating the design in metal, his interpretation is vital to the overall feel of the jewel. The setter may want to pre-set the stones and open out the setting before they are pre-polished. With the jewel mounted, polished and set, you can have a personal hand engraving to finish the jewellery
