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.
1. What inspired you to become a jewellery maker?

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?

My Jupiter earrings, which are gold vermeil earrings with diamond cut sapphires.
 
3. What inspires your work?

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.
