Large Pandeiro necklace pendant in silver with spinning zils. The design is inspired by the tambourine that was brought to Brazil by Portuguese settlers and known locally as a Pandeiro. From the Journey to Brazil.
The pendant, including loop, measures approximately 34x30mm.
The pendant is shown here on a Catena Fine chain.
All Cassandra Goad pendants are sold without chains so that you may select the chain of your choice, both in style and length. If you would like to add a chain have a look at our selection here.
It was the Portuguese who brought the tambourine to the Brazilians and now the thought of Brazil and its carnival without it seems an impossibility. My golden pandeiro is double sided so you can have any combination of diamonds, or wear it plain if you prefer. I have also made it in silver and in all of them the tiny Zils tinkle as they move and as you move, just as in a real tambourine.
All Cassandra Goad Jewellery is designed and made in our workshops in London.
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.
