Today for Founder Friday, we catch up with another one of our wonderful jewellers, Kassandra Lauren Gordon, who creates made to order and bespoke fine jewellery.
My mum gave me a gold locket at 9 years old. This was the start of my love for jewellery. I knew it was gold and delicate, so I had to take care of it. This was my first gold jewellery item. My mum was a single parent and did not have much money. I knew that she saved and sacrificed for me for nearly a year to buy this precious gift. Over 20 years later I still have it in pristine condition.
2. What is your favourite piece from your collection?
Concepts, people and relationships inspire my work.
I design ethical jewellery with a range of styles in mind; from minimalist styles for the more formal work environments to loud pieces for creatives. My pieces appeal to a woman who is bold, fearless and unapologetic about who she is. She has the courage to show herself and allow herself to continue on a journey of discovery about her own growth and the world around her.
I feel my jewellery style is minimalistic with organic, textured elements contrasting with geometric shapes. Importantly, all my pieces are infused with storytelling.
