About Kassandra Lauren Gordon


I want to create jewellery related content to change the world and make people think differently.

About me

I have fallen in love with jewellery since I was 9 years old. A gold locket changed my life. 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 first gold jewellery item. My mum was a single parent, and did not have much money. I knew that she saved, sacrificed and grafted for me for a nearly a year to buy this precious gift. 20 years later I still have it in pristine condition. Every time I see this or wear this locket I feel love, a strong bond between a mother and daughter. I remember my childhood and great Christmases. These memories and warm feelings will never die. Thank you mum xxxx

The love for jewellery developed in my teens:

When I was 13, I noticed that jewellery transformed people. I saw when people wear jewellery it brings their personality to life. They have a story that I want them to tell me.
I used to buy my family and friends jewellery presents. When they saw the jewellery I gave them, I felt the joy I see on their faces. They felt the love from me and the bonds between the people I loved grew stronger.
Jewellery equals love.

Working in London:

I am an ethical jewellery designer maker. I have lived in many places in the UK and settled in London seven years ago. I have worked in the public and voluntary sector for nearly 10 years. I have studied jewellery manufacture and design in Hatton Gardens (the UK’s biggest jewellery district). I learnt the traditional techniques of making handmade jewellery, before setting up my East London studio. I studied at Holts Academy. In addition, I write poems and stories.
I design ethical jewellery with the dress codes of a range of professional industries in mind; from minimalist styles for the more formal work environments to loud pieces for creatives.
I am the ethical fine jeweller of choice for hard working and confident women who want pieces that they can wear seamlessly from day to night.
I feel my jewellery style is minimalistic with organic, textured elements contrasting with geometric shapes. It is always infused with storytelling.

And I organised by myself the UK black Jewellers Hardship fund

I have supported the Black Jewellers Survey (first in its kind):

I have spent over the last 6 months working harder as a small Black Jeweller. Which has a big effect on me and my business- I can only take the time to make sustainable change-if I am supported with donations. I can dedicate time to make changes.

Campaigning, consulting and being social commentator can not be sustainable on this much-needed diversity and inclusion work in the UK jewellery trade.  It would great if you can help to make this possible. With your support, we can drive change.

Look how much the jewellery industry changed in 6 months- imagine we can do more, if the support is in place.
