Jessica Pass is a Fine Jeweller based in Central London. She works from The Goldsmiths’ Centre, minutes away from Hatton Garden, London’s famous jewellery quarter. She creates bold eye-catching pieces inspired by the natural world, it’s forms, colours and textures.
Having grown up in the Peak District in Derbyshire, she was fortunate enough to be surrounded by luscious green fields as a child. She always loved to draw and paint, being particularly fascinated with insects and birds, so did many studies over her school years. Jessica’s great grandfather was an artist, who taught her how to draw from an early age.
Before the world of jewellery design had got under her skin, and perhaps due to her more traditional schooling, Jessica had only ever considered a career in Fine Art. After joining an evening class in jewellery making, it quickly became clear that becoming a jeweller was the only option.
Jessica went on to study Jewellery Design at the renowned art college Central Saint Martins for three years. She continued her training at the Royal College of Art, where she completed a two-year MA in Jewellery & Metal.
It would seem she cannot escape her roots, as she still draws inspiration from the natural world. She is fascinated with the idea of the unseen. Many of her pieces contain a hidden secret.
Jessica often returns to the countryside to conjure up ideas for her new creations. All her work is made, and hand finished in London.
