Cowrie

I have a bowl of cowrie shells collected from beaches around the world. There are small and matt pale pink ones, larger polished ones with dappled browns, and others so sea-worn I could string them on a chain. I decided to take one shell and recreate those charming, undulating folds, the soft dome curving round... and make earrings and pendants.

Silver

Silver is the most malleable of metals and when freshly polished takes a mirror like shine. All of the sterling silver used in Cassandra Goad jewellery is of the highest quality and crafted in one of our workshops in London. Cassandra always finds her silver from sustainable sources and where possible recycles the metal; never compromising on quality.

If you would like to have this design crafted bespoke for you in another metal - yellow, white or rose gold - please contact us and we will be delighted to make this for you. In some designs we can also mix metals in the same design.
