Fine-jeweller Tessa Packard is hoping its new Lost & Found collection will prove a success with consumers and through its retail partners.
The diverse collection, stocked on its ecommerce site and with partners, 1stdibs.com and style.com, features a range of price points (£375 – £14,000), adding to its wide appeal.
The firm anticipates that the collection will be its “most eclectic and elaborate work to date”, with the use of vibrant gemstones, gold and porcelain, as well as enamelling and unusual materials such as hand-carved bone, the latter two being a first for the brand.
“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,” commented Tessa Packard.
“‘In all honesty, I had a lot of fun designing Lost & Found as I let my eccentric imagination run wild, resulting in a collection which celebrates both the weird and the wonderful and which I hope will ultimately challenge and excite our audiences.”
In contrast to her previous two collections, both of which had a monochromatic, simple aesthetic, Lost & Found looks to push boundaries and experiment with colour and materials.
Eccentricity is celebrated through the collection that, while designed to remain elegant and highly wearable, does not try to take itself too seriously, the designer said.
The natural world, both flora and fauna, continues be a central influence in this collection.
The jewellery takes the form of opera length necklaces, weighty cocktail rings, statement drop and creeper earrings, as well as chain link cufflinks.
Notable pieces include the Fruit Bat earrings in hand-carved bone, watermelon tourmaline, enamel and 18ct yellow gold, the Whoops a Daisy ring in hand-carved onyx, diamond and 18ct yellow gold and the Miss Pig earrings in ceramic, cabochon rose quartz and 18ct yellow gold.
Alongside the collection’s launch, the brand will be running a social media campaign entitled #LostandFound.
