Kassandra is a London based jeweller who through a journey of self-discovery found inspiration to channel the experience, texture, and voice of herself and her community into her craft. For Kassandra, jewellery has become more than creating bold and unapologetic pieces; her story lives in what she creates. In 2020 her lightbulb moment came as she started to express her own voice in her work and using it to support other Black, minority, and first-generation jewellers.
Kassandra and tomfoolery owner, Laura kay, connected in 2020 to form a close professional mentoring relationship as part of Laura’s desire to level the playing field and support a more diverse jewellery industry. Together, they’ve worked to evolve Kassandra as a conceptual designer and allow the story of her culture, heritage and identity to be told through her creations.
“This is my switch” pendant is a manifestation of Kassandra’s self-discovery. A bold, fearless piece expressing a newfound passion to explore her cultural heritage, this pendant celebrates diversity. The lightbulb symbolises Kassandra’s own awakening to her identity and the braids surrounding it represents discrimination, but its complex structure of interlacing strands also stands for unity. Parts of the proceeds of the sale will be donated to Domestic Violence charity Sistah Space.
