Jessie Thomas: "A lot of inspiration comes from developing a new technique or when I learn how to mount a diamond in a certain way."
You learned your craft from your father, master goldsmith David Thomas, how was it growing up with and learning from him?
It is such a big part of our lives that it has always been that. But I didn’t necessarily think it was what I wanted to do, but once I started, I became obsessed. Because it is a craft, and learning a craft just takes loads of time and practice. It’s quite fascinating as a craft, I think. It is one of the most interesting ones, and it is one of the most technical ones. Once, I started, I was hooked.
This takes me to my next question, so you haven’t always known that you wanted to be a goldsmith? Or was it always in the background?
He actually lives above the workshop, so I literally grew up above the workshop. It was very much a part of my childhood. Then, I actually didn’t train in jewellery originally, because I did history of art. I worked for a couple of years in art, and then I ended up coming here and training under him. I think I’ve been here for nine years now. I did my whole apprenticeship and now I am what you call a journeyman goldsmith, whereas he is a master goldsmith, because he has obviously had apprentices.
