London Craft Week

In the elegant surrounding of The George, Mayfair, Tessa Packard London hosted A Guide to Bespoke Jewellery workshop and masterclass in collaboration with both her goldsmith, Russell Hart, and Charlie Boyd, the Executive Jewellery Editor at Harper’s Bazaar.

The insightful discussion between Tessa and Russell, chaired by Charlie, provided a comprehensive step-by-step guide to designing and creating bespoke jewellery from the point of view of both the fine jewellery designer and craftsman. Each shared their expertise with the guests present, exploring all facets from inception of design and design concept, through to the making of the piece in question. The discussion also covered the pitfalls to be aware of when commissioning jewellery and included guidance with regards to fine jewellery investment.

Following the discussion quick Q&A guests were given the opportunity to design their own bespoke jewellery piece using an assortment of gemstones provided and have their designs commissioned and made into exquisite jewellery jointly by Tessa and Russell.

A special thank you to Charlie Boyd, Russell Hart, and both the teams at London Craft Week and The George for such a successful event!
