Jessica Poole

Jessica Poole has dedicated the past 10years developing her skills, training in Ireland, England and Belgium in pursuit of her passion for craft and design. This passion has been awarded with numerous grants and awards. She is proud to be a Queen Elizabeth Scholar due to the latest scholarship that afforded her 3months training in Micro Pave Diamond Setting in Antwerp. As one of QEST’s largest benefactors in its19 year history, the Scholarship afforded Jessica the time and money to train with a master Micro Pave setter working with diamonds as small as 0.6mm, set with the aid of a microscope.

Whether it be ripple in a pond or folds in fabric she is drawn to sensuous objects. Whatever the inspiration the pursuit of elegant simplicity is a constant endeavor. Subtle and sophisticated, the design is intentionally minimal ensuring that both the form and the natural beauty of the materials can be fully and equally appreciated.

Working from her London workshop each piece is made by Jessica from concept to creation. The combination of her design, goldsmithing and stone setting skills allow her to have full control over every piece of jewellery. She welcomes commission and bespoke work and her gemological qualification will ensure confidence when working with precious stones. Driven by quality and craft, she combines age old traditional techniques with modern technology and equipment. The result is contemporary precious jewellery executed in a considered manner.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 1 day we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
