The ridged spines of the Moroccan Sea Holly (Ilex in Latin) link one blue flower to another creating a chain of flowers amongst the prickles of the silvery grey-green leaves. Tough and drought resistant it has survived for centuries in Morocco's harsh, dry climates.
The rounded ends of the Ilex chain-links echo the flower heads Strong and resilient; the Ilex chain can be all of one metal or a mixture of metals. A unisex chain for the new era.
All Cassandra Goad jewellery is designed and made in the
workshops in London.
As a gemmologist, the chemical composition and properties of gemstones have always fascinated Cassandra. Ever in search of the unusual and rare, she 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, his interpretation is vital to the overall feel of the jewel. The jewel is then mounted, assayed , polished and set. Many of Cassandra's jewels can be hand engraved with a personal message to make a unique bespoke gift.
