Cassandra employs traditional fabrication and casting techniques to achieve her ornamental designs. She loves to work in silver because the material is versatile and allows her to experiment with large scale form. She works colour into her designs through the use of gemstones and enamel, allowing nothing to escape without at least a hint of colour. Her designs often begin as doodles of shapes and lines, which quickly evolve into a series of equations; calculating and positioning each element in the design.
Cassandra began academically pursuing art at CEGEP John Abbott College, where she discovered that she had a love for detail and building objects. This love led her to the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design University, where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in Jewellery Design and Metalsmithing. Vitiello has a passion for silver and gemstones, which she uses to create jewellery with mechanical qualities.
