Mysterious Ephemera
Jessica’s bespoke jewellery shop is to be found under the sign ‘Pianos’ on Fortess Street, close to Kentish Town tube and railway station. The light and airy shop is linked to Jessica’s workshop at the rear of the premises, via a gold-coloured circular window designed in Jessica’s unique style.

A graduate of St Martin’s, Jessica’s designs reflect her passion for narrative and ephemera, mysterious links to past eras and the unstoppable passage of time. Elegant and uncluttered, her jewellery evokes fascination with the form and a curiosity about the symbols she uses; arrows, hearts, letter stamps, and hallmarks.

Her old studio building having closed, Jessica decided to take the plunge and open her own retail space. A fast worker, she obtained the new premises in December 2015 and opened just before Valentine’s Day this year. Men and women are catered for with Jessica’s quirky and luxe creations. Quintessentially English in their feel, the jewellery makes ideal gifts for those seeking something a little different.

The shop itself has a relaxed and laid-back atmosphere thanks to the light and intimate decor that marries well with the style of Jessica’s jewellery. Jessica’s collections are displayed with a few extra props to give them context, consisting of playing cards, travel tickets from days gone by, maps and photographs from past eras, plus artefacts that contextualise Jessica’s creative process, such as a collection that was created in collaboration with a life coach, that have life-affirming inscriptions on the back to keep them, in Jessica’s words, ‘close to the heart’.

MO-GA: Perfectly Imperfect

As the Sun shines on Earth, so MO-GA’s gender-fluid designs grace the bodies of everyone, rejoicing in ambiguity. Multiple sleeves and feathers recall the animal kingdom in all its glorious diversity; it’s a new aesthetic.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
