London-based fine jeweller Tessa Packard has officially launched her new collection, Lost and Found.
Drawing on inspirations such as the Victorian curiosity cabinet, the work of artist Joseph Cornell and the designer’s own love of collecting and taxidermy, the new designs are an eclectic and elaborate mix.
Using gemstone, gold and porcelain, the Lost and Found collection also features enamelling and diverse materials such as hand-carved bone. The central influence in the new collection is the natural world, combining both flora and fauna to maintain the brand’s established style.
The new collection, manufactured entirely in both Birmingham and London, comprises opera length necklaces, cocktail rings, and drop and creeper earrings alongside chain link cufflinks. Statement pieces include the Whoops-A-Daisy ring made from onyx, diamond and 18ct yellow gold as well as the Miss Pig earrings in ceramic and cabochon rose quartz set in 18ct yellow gold.
Eponymous designer and founder Tessa Packard said: “I really wanted to push the boat out with this particular collection and bring together materials and ideas that I’d collected over the past four years but that had never quite made it into a collection.
“In all honesty, I had a lot of fun designing Lost and Found as I let my eccentric imagination run wild, resulting in a collection that celebrates both the weird and the wonderful and which I hope will ultimately challenge and excite our audiences.”
Retail prices for the Lost and Found collection range from £325 to £14,000.
The collection is now available online at tessapackard.com and participating online retailers.
