Cassandra has always been intrigued by the historical jewel known as a chatelaine ( a decorative belt hook or clasp worn at the waist with a series of chains suspended from it). Each chain is mounted with a useful household gadget such as scissors, thimble, watch, key, vinaigrette, household seal, etc - a device designed to have all the tools necessary for the woman of a household to sort out any problem she may encounter during her day, like a fraying curtain! With this in mind she created her Chatelaine design allowing her clients to wear a collection of her charms together. From the Journey to France.
All Cassandra Goad pendants are sold without chains allowing you to select one of your choice. Discover all chains here.
Chatelaine necklace pendant in silver. The pendant, including loop, measures approximately 23x33mm. All pendants sold without chains.
Cassandra herself designs all her jewels and works closely with her stone cutters and craftsmen throughout the process from design through to creation including on her bespoke projects.
Ever in search of the unusual and rare, Cassandra 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. The jewel is then mounted, assayed, polished and set.
