Zellije

"The palaces of Marrakech and Fez sprinkled a mystic moorish charm over me. The ornate sculptural doorways, the colourful tiles and Zellije star shaped outlines, the courtyards of ripening fruit, and the tinkling of clear water from the fountains were both seductive and soothing at the same time. I spent hours looking out at them, sketching in the shade.

As I arrived at the palace of El Bahia in Marrakesh the craftsmen were painstakingly repairing damaged Zellije and I watched as it was carefully recreated. I closed my eyes and saw those same patterns on the workshop bench in gold and silver, and filled with the colour of stones."

Peridot

Peridot was found from 300BC on the Isle of St John in the Red Sea and crusaders bought it back for their catherdrals in the Middle Ages. When beautifully cut it has the colour of a freshly unfurled beech leaf in Spring- although it is actually the birthstone for August. Large stones are rare and when she finds them, Cassandra loves to use them for brooches and earrings.

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.
