Tamsin Francesca's designs exploit the versatile flexibility of the gold, silver and bronze thread she uses, which allows it to be twisted and manipulated into the most delicate forms, and yet retain its strength and durability to be worn everyday. Gold and silver enhance cascades of freshwater pearls in the Baya collection, and bespoke options are always available.
If you have a colour theme, or a stunning vintage gown, bespoke pieces can be created for you.
Coming from a background in costume design, Tamsin Francesca has an innate understanding of how to marry accessories with a gown to stunning effect.
Tamsin Francesca’s work is both delicate and bold. Her interest lies in the intricacy of the traditional textile techniques used in the lace work which can be married with the jeweller’s skill and craft to create truly unique pieces. Taking inspiration from natural forms, each piece is completely handmade and as a member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen, Tamsin Francesca's work is of the highest standard, drawing on ten years of design experience.
The lacework, married with the skill of the jeweller, makes each piece individual and delicate, giving the pieces a lightness of weight not normally found in larger scale jewellery. The hairpieces and tiaras are lighter than air and can be co-ordinated with matching necklaces, earrings and bracelets, bridesmaids' tokens and commemorative pieces for the mother of the bride. Pieces you can wear again and again, handing down as 'something old' in years to come.
Completing her training in London's renowned Hatton Garden, Tamsin Francesca has been widely exhibited, both nationally and internationally, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, The Mall Galleries and Goldsmith's Hall
