Jess Hannah: "We’re guided by a mix of interdisciplinary references: jewellery’s rich history and time-steeped symbolism; esoteric color references; where the refined meets the cultural zeitgeist."
When did you discover your love for jewellery?
A big part of why I became a jeweler was my early interest in tinkering with my grandmother's jewellery. She had accumulated a lifetime of a select few pieces that all had different significance for her. My favorite piece of hers inspired my Clara collection, it's a delicate oval bead that is suspended from a cable chain.
And what was your path into designing jewellery?
In college I studied graphic design, but I liked making things with my hands, so it was a natural progression to learn the craft, as I couldn't afford the things I was lusting after. I began learning from a retired jeweler out of her garage. Later I started making pieces independently in my bedroom, and later on briefly apprenticed with a local jeweler duo. J. Hannah started with me hand-making every piece myself and it grew organically from there!
