THE MAGICAL WORLD OF TESSA PACKARD LONDON JEWELLERY

Down Arrow Down Arrow

THE DESIGNER

Tessa has been obsessed with design since a young age. By the age of ten she was curating her own curiosity cabinets with found objects from the woods and fields; by twelve she was designing catwalk clothes for imaginary clients; at fifteen she started making felt handbags for her school friends; and somewhere beyond that she decided to pursue a career in the world of art and design and have some fun along the way.

Tessa’s other great passion is nature and the great outdoors. Bought up in the wilds of the Scottish countryside, she’s as happy drawing in her London office as she is covered in heather and mud on some bleak moor. In fact, much of Tessa’s jewellery is directly inspired by her childhood and time spent in these wild spaces, alongside the creatures that reside within them. It is perhaps unsurprising that she still spends most of her free time in the city in the park or at the Natural History Museum, her favourite home away from home.

TESSA’S PICK OF THE WEEK

“The Wonderland Earrings are actually extremely versatile thanks in part to their brass petals, which are supremely lightweight – you can hardly feel these earrings on your ears.”

THE BRAND

Tessa Packard  London was founded in 2013 with the aim of offering customers FUN FINE JEWELLERY. Back then, there wasn’t much in the way of whimsy in this sector. Tessa decided to see if she could create jewellery with real heart, soul and storytelling power, to give customers the chance to purchase something a little different.

Nearly ten years on,  the brand continues to be inspired by our original three influences: Victorian curiosity cabinets, nature and all things fun, whimsical and pop. The jewellery may have changed on our website but our core design DNA has not. We still aspire to create head-turning, wearable works of art for all ages to enjoy.

THE IMPORTANCE OF STORYTELLING

Inspired by Victorian curiosity cabinets, juxtaposition and all things whimsical, Tessa Packard’s fine jewellery collections are all about building alternative, magical worlds in miniature. We want our customers to be awed by our themes, and to feel part of a special story when they wear one of our unique pieces.

Because we believe in the importance of uniqueness and exclusivity, all of our jewellery is editioned or one-of-a-kind. We don’t sell any of our jewellery in large batches or in any ‘mass-market’ capacity. In fact, we like to keep things exclusive by only selling our jewellery through our own website and by private, in-person appointment.  We don’t follow trends or design what we think we should design. All our creations come from the heart, each and every time.

Statement design shouldn’t be compromised, and we work really hard to make sure we deliver fabulous, fun fine jewellery.

WHAT THEY SAY

“Tessa Packard has fast become known as a jeweller who creates irreverent, highly imaginative pieces with relentlessly surprising points of reference, be it ancient Aztec architecture or retro penny sweets. Her mood boards and workbooks are almost as much of a visual treat as her actual jewels, which goes to show how much thought and work she puts into the design process – a mark of a true designer if ever there was one.”
