Quote Pendants

Cassandra's quote pendants began when her cousin Matilda Goad 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 and 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.
