Cassandra's quote pendants began when her cousin Matilda Goad asked Cassandra to engrave some words from her grandmother. Not wanting the words to be easily readable by others , Cassandra engraved the pendant ´like the French arrondissements : en colimacon (like a snail, spiraling out from the centre) '. Soon, others followed : words of wisdom , encouragement and even prayers and Cassandra continues to add to her Quote pendants whenever she finds words that inspire her. Cassandra has also undertaken bespoke projects of quotes or words: they can be written in the writer's own handwriting, in any language and to any design. Through two of her Quote pendants Cassandra has found a way to 'give back': 'Onwards' for the Endeavour Fund and 'May Love abound all round' for Horatio's Garden.
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.
