Near Mexico City, the Aztecs were growing maize and grinding it with a metate. I admired these circular stones with their deep grooves and sketched them as an earring with pear shaped stones, hanging from them, like small sparkling pieces of corn.
All Cassandra Goad Jewellery is designed and made in our workshops in London.
Ever in search of the unusual and rare, Cassandra 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. The jewel is then mounted, assayed, polished and set.
