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 sculptural 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 recently expanded her repertoire to explore objet d’art, which draws direct inspiration from her second love: the natural world and the great outdoors.
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 brilliant 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 the Natural History Museum.
As strong believer in British industry, Tessa made the decision to have all her jewellery manufactured and hand-finished by workshops in the UK, and still continues to do so to this day.
