"I am delighted with the beautiful necklace that Jess designed and personalised for me. It perfectly captures the memories that I wanted to embrace and has given me the perfect heirloom to pass onto my daughter when the time is right.
"Jess has proven that she has the technical capability to create bespoke pieces that are both beautiful and timeless. I could not be happier with her work and would recommend her to anyone who is looking for something a little special and totally individual."

“One by one over the years I’ve collected Jessica's beautiful, wearable small-scale sculptures that bring me major happiness and confidence. As a bald woman, Jess’s jewellery is my suit of armour, my beautiful protection.
"Jess is an anomaly in what she does and I think that makes an amazing jeweller. She’s a really talented artist that offers her art for us to wear. I will pass my jewellery onto my kids and I will ask them to pass them onto their loved ones and so on."
Maria Guirao, @guiraodesign
"I fell in love with Jessica’s jewellery about 10 years ago, since which time her beautiful necklace has been a constant companion. Over the years it has grown with me and become something more. Each piece is a memory, a sign of betrothal to a person or a time that we carry around with us close to our skin. I have added my Christening medals; charms for children; something to remember my dad when he passed away; a lucky charm when I feel luck has forgotten me; charms to look after me and my loved ones. I have taken out and added new ones as life has passed. I feel I’m weaving my story and Jessica’s unmistakable necklace has allowed me to be creative and more me."

"My father and brothers have cufflinks with our family crest on one side and their initials on the other side. My mother has a matching necklace. The pieces are a celebration of our family. It's really special that everyone has matching and I love that Jessica holds on to the dies, meaning that when we welcome new additions to the family we can continue the tradition."

"The saying is a reference my family all use to explain that beautiful things (relationships, personal and work goals) often take a lot of hard work and time. Pearls are made when grit gets into an oyster and they secrete a fluid to coat the irritant grit. Over time, this fluid builds up and forms a pearl.
"In essence, everything good takes hard work and that's OK! But also good things come out of things you think are bad! My family live up North, so it's a reminder of them, and to also knuckle myself under if things get tough!)."

“With the birth of my first child in April, I wanted some pieces of heirloom jewellery that marked this special occasion, and that I could pass onto my daughter. Jessica guided me through the process of creating some beautiful pieces that were especially representative and personal to me. I love how any of Jessica’s designs can be personalised and adapted to give you a truly one off piece - this is particularly reflected in my moon swoon necklace in which we added a tiny birthstones to symbolise the members of my family, and my own birthstone worn on one of the dancing hands, ‘holding’ my little family.”

"This piece was inspired by a 16th Century signet ring engraved with a lamb, that my husband bought as a gift for himself - from jewellery expert Geoffrey Munn - when our third child was born, in celebration of the family surname - Lamb.
"We all laughed at the idea and he reluctantly took it back. I had always felt a bit guilty about making him do this and realised that Jessica loved nothing more than hearing about jewellery stories and breathing new life into old ideas and heirlooms. She was the catalyst that made me want to recreate the ring and we are both so pleased with the final piece."
