Raffia

"In Marrakech, in the shade of an umbrella, I watched an old man plaiting and weaving his baskets, cajoling the stray wisps into the pattern of his creation. I always search for the essence of a country when I travel: so in observing the women carrying their goods to and from the market, or when they were just out shopping, I saw that the basket was ever present - a part of their daily ritual.

With my craftsmen I created Raffia: a jewelled tasselled earring, whose wrapping of gold and silver around and around echoes the work of the old man and his basket weaving. The movement reminds me of the busy Medina that is never still, always in motion."

Yellow Gold

Gold is a metal that Cassandra loves to work with, it takes a wonderful pátina with time. Cassandra has the skill of knowing which carat, strength and durability of gold to use, where stone setting is concerned, so that jewels last and look beautiful for generations. Sourcing gold and other metals responsibly from people who have the same ethical vision as herself is particularly important, and she regularly encourages transformations from old unworn jewels in to new sparkling pieces. When receiving jewels from Cassandra Goad, you can be assured that only the highest quality gold is being used.

If you would like to have this design crafted bespoke for you in another metal - silver, white or rose gold - please contact us and we will be delighted to make this for you.

Craftsmanship and Sourcing

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.
