CASSIES STORY

My name is Cassie and I am the founder and designer behind the meaningful keepsake jewellery brand, Cassiopi.
I am half Greek and have been lucky enough to visit my relatives there every year since I was born. 
I vividly remember when I was around 8 years old, going for a walk one summers evening with my mum after a day-trip to the beach. We visited a small boutique jewellery shop and I was allowed to pick something for myself. 
I remember being in awe of the shiny metals and gorgeous coloured gemstones and picked a beautiful silver ring with a Garnet stone.
That experience sparked a life-long love for jewellery which became the way in which I expressed myself. 
Every time we went on holiday, jewellery became my souvenir of choice to remember the experience by. 
I come from a very creative background of artists and musicians, and after a number of years working in the travel industry and a life-changing road trip to the West coast of the USA in 2014, I decided I wanted to pursue my passion for jewellery and started Cassiopi.
I am passionate about creating meaningful, unusual yet classic pieces that are quality, responsibly made and yet still affordable.

 

 

HOW THE JEWELLERY IS DESIGNED AND MADE

 Cassiopi About Us How its Made

Each piece starts out as a sketch which is then fully designed by Cassie in a vector programme.

MADE IN THE UK BY SMALL WORKSHOPS

After many hours of tweaking the design is then sent to be etched and lasered in quality jewellers brass. The brass is perfect for holding fine detail that allows for the final piece to really sparkle in the light.

Each piece is de-sprued and sent to be polished to a mirror finish by family run jewellers in the Midlands.

Finally they are sent to an electroplaters to be plated in a very thick layer of 99.9% fine silver. 

The plating is over five times the thickness of standard high-street plated jewellery which is often only dipped in silver. This means that when properly looked after, the jewellery lasts for years.

Every piece of Cassiopi jewellery is hung on 925 Sterling Silver chain or 925 Sterling Silver Hoops.

The jewellery comes in a gorgeous recycled gift box, perfect for gift-giving.
