Inspired by Victorian curiosity cabinets, juxtaposition and all things whimsical, Tessa Packard’s fine jewellery collections aim to build alternative worlds in miniature, where unique storytelling and quintessential British eccentricity sit at the heart of her jewelled constructions.
Alongside her bi-annual collections, Tessa also works all year round on bespoke commissions, both on behalf of private individuals as well as larger corporate clients. She has also recently expanded her design repertoire to include objet d’art and other fun accessories in a bid to bring both a touch of pop and the natural world into the home.
When not riding horses or playing in puddles Tessa can be found at her London Chelsea showroom, which she opened with the help of her team in late 2017. Designed and decorated like a Victorian study, complete with taxidermy, art, collected curiosities and found objects, it has fast become known as one of the city’s best curated spaces for those who wish they lived in a rainbow-sprinkled Natural History Museum.
A strong believer in British industry, Tessa has all her jewellery manufactured and finished by workshops in the UK. She personally hand-makes all her resin objet d’art and hopes to continue to do so for many years to come.
