Cassandra's quote pendants began when her cousin asked Cassandra to engrave some words from her grandmother. Not wanting the words to be easily readable by others , Cassandra engraved the pendant ´like the French arrondissements : en colimacon (like a snail, spiraling out from the centre) '. Soon, others followed: words of wisdom , encouragement and even prayers. Cassandra continues to add to her Quote pendants whenever she finds words that inspire her.
Cassandra has also undertaken bespoke projects of quotes or words; they can be written in the writer's own handwriting, in any language and to any design.
Through two of her Quote pendants Cassandra has found a way to 'give back': 'Onwards' for the Endeavour Fund and 'May Love abound all round' for Horatio's Garden.
Do not follow where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and make a trail.The words from Cassandra's first quote pendant.
The combination of my love of jewellery, typefaces and the art of lettering and literature is all contained in my Quote pendants. When I find a new quote, I play with the words, with the serifs, with the layout. I ponder it over time to be sure it offers encouragement and empowers the wearer wherever their life may take them. I love to think of godparents, grandparents and friends sharing the quotes, binding them together through life, however far apart they may be.
Cassandra keeps a commonplace book into which she notes down phrases, quotations from novels and poems, and sayings in any language. Cassandra has also undertaken bespoke projects using quotes and words that have been brought to her. They can be in any language, created in any design and even written in the writer's own handwriting.
