Cassandra Featonby Smith Q&A with Mr Price Fashion:

This is your first collaboration with Mr P, what is the inspiration behind your jewellery collection? 
 I was unemployed with lots of spare time and spent a lot of that time roaming the aisles of hardware stores (something I picked up from my dad!). My interest in rope particularly, was sparked by the macramé trend that started in the 70’s and is back in a big way, fashion always repeats itself.

Do you have a favourite piece in your collection?
The first piece I made which was the twisted knot necklace.

Describe yourself in 3 words?
Happy-go-lucky

What is the summer must-have you cannot live without?
A neon rope necklace!

What is your motto/quote that you live by?
“A lot of people never use their initiative because no-one told them to.” - Banksy

What is your favourite look to rock with your jewellery?
 Jeans and a tee. Let the jewellery make the outfit.

What do you love the most about being a designer?
Having the ability to create whatever you want, if you brave enough to take criticism

What are you listening to on your i-pod at the moment?
 A lot of Hip Hop from the golden age.

Wednesday Adams from the Adams Family.                                                                                                                                             
What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?
