Cassandra adores calligraphy and she always writes with an ink pen - a fascination that began with her godfather, who ran Faber and Faber, the publishing house of T S Eliot and William Golding. This led to her working with the Type Museum and its huge library of typefaces. The Alice alphabet is taken from a number of typefaces including Bodoni, Helvetica, Baskerville, Columna and Times Roman.
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
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.
