The letters of my initial pendants, bracelets and cufflinks are all from the typefaces I love the most: Bodoni, Columna, and Palatino. I named the collection 'Alice', as Alice was the first person I made the first letter for. I am fascinated by typography - seeing it as an art form when I write with my italic pen, I like to draw each letter as a design. So, the series of letters like 'R' and 'S', often have swirls and flourishes, added to them across the page.
Diamond- from the Greek 'adamas' means the unconquerable and so it is, being the hardest of all gemstones. From yellowish to green, red, pink and blue, diamonds are found in all colours in South Africa, Australia, as well as Namibia, Russia and China.
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.
