Micro Pave is a relatively new technique and currently practiced by a small group of setters in the UK. Jessica is one of the very few female Micro Pave setters in the U.K and uses this beautiful mode of diamond setting extensively throughout her work.
Jessica was given a Queen Elizabeth Scholarship which afforded her the time to spend three and a half months in Antwerp, Belgium, training with a Master Diamond setter. The intense, 6 day week tuition happened in a state of the art workshop, equipped with microscopes, camera and specialised engraving equipment. The technique of using a multitude of tiny stones lends itself particularly well to Jessica’s fluid forms and soft clean lines. She uses these lines of “diamond light” in such a way that the stones become an integral part of the piece rather than the main focus of it.
