With roots in both the Peak District and the coast of North Norfolk, Jessica has always drawn inspiration from the natural world and the beautiful landscapes she grew up in. Her great grandfather was an artist, who taught her to draw from a young age, and so much of her childhood was spent outdoors drawing and painting her surroundings.
Jessica quickly discovered her passion for jewellery design whilst studying Art Foundation at Oxford Brookes University. The jewellery craft requires meticulous skill, and realising this Jessica began to hone her skills shadowing a jeweller in a studio outside of Oxford for a year. From there she went on to study Jewellery Design for three years at the renowned fashion school Central Saint Martins, where she realised her love of creating jewellery inspired by the natural world. She then went on to the Royal College of Art - the “world's most influential postgraduate institution of Art and Design” - for her Masters, where she truly established her unique style of making, and gained many fans of her extraordinary jewelled hinged insects.
Soon after graduating Jessica moved to a studio at the Goldsmiths' Centre in the heart of London's jewellery quarter, Hatton Garden, where she completed an intensive year-long jewellery business course, equipping her to launch her eponymous brand: Jessica Pass London.
Jessica now works from her home studio in Fulham, which provides a conceptual space for her to create, and to teach classes with her beautiful dog at her feet! Studio visits are always welcome.
