At Home: Jessica McCormack

Words by Clementine Widdowson-de Pressigny

It hasn’t taken Jessica McCormack long to situate herself as one of the most sought after jewellery designers in the world, creating bespoke pieces worn by Carine Roitfield, Rihanna and Madonna.

It is her expert eye for detail, and a penchant for combining old charm with a fresh modernism that has got her to where she is in the jewellery world. Her aesthetic style is reflected in her home and work environments in London’s Notting Hill and Clerkenwell, which we were lucky enough to take a look around.

It’s been five years since she opened The Salon, her appointment-only showroom filled with endless curiosities that reflect her childhood in Christchurch surrounded by the antiques of her father’s auction house.

Before embarking on her own business, Jessica interned at the Victorian jewellery department at Sotheby’s where her interest in fine jewellery developed into a full-blown love affair. But while she appreciated the incredible antique designs, she had her own ideas for incorporating diamonds full of history into a modern vision.

Jessica is part of the entire process of developing her designs from the initial sketch to the finished product, which are all handmade in London.

Jessica views designing each piece of jewellery as creating a tiny sculpture and her inspirations, which range from the London BT Tower to the seven deadly sins, are as eclectic as the carefully selected pieces that populate her home and workspace.
