I attended a fine jewellery private viewing event by Kassandra Lauren Gordon after work on Monday.
Kassandra Lauren Gordon is currently exhibiting her fourth solo show to showcase her new collection called ‘Finding Water On Mars’ at The Corner Shop in Farrington from the 5th until the 11th of September 2016.
Address: The Corner Shop, Craft Central, 21 Clerkenwell Green, London, EC1R 0DX
Kassandra Lauren Gordon studied jewellery manufacturing and design in Hatton Gardens and is a registered Fair-trade Goldsmith based in London. Two years after setting up her private handmade jewellery studio in Hackney London, she is now celebrating becoming a partner of ‘Not on a High Street’. She has experience as a domestic violence worker and has worked in the public sector for almost 10 years . Her interaction and day-to-day contact with women in the community have convinced her of the need for women to be more assertive. Many of the pieces from her collection are named after inspirational female scientists.
‘Finding Water On Mars’ collection is inspired by the geology of Mars and it explores the idealism of beginning anew on a blank slate.
Kassandra Lauren Gordon’s collection includes pendants, earrings, rings, bangles and chokers. All pieces are made from precious metals and gemstones by hand and many of the pieces available for purchase from her website are made specially to order. It normally takes 2 to 4 weeks from the date your order to receive your handmade pieces.
Who is it for?
Kassandra Lauren Gordon jewellery pieces can be worn by anyone. Gordon wants all her pieces to be full of sentimental value for their owners thus she has a high commitment to customer service. Her collection is chic but, at the same time, elegant. Gordon’s stunning designs cater for anyone who wishes to wear some beautiful, handmade pieces made from precious metals and values uniqueness and high quality. All of her jewellery can be worn faultlessly in professional and casual contexts as it adds some playful glamour.
As all of Gordon’s pieces are handmade they are more expensive than usual pieces you would get from a high-street jeweller. Nonetheless, the quality and uniqueness of her designs convinced me that they are worth paying a bit more for.
Please refer to the website for more details.
