I experiment with sculptural forms through the use of unusually shaped gemstones and curious settings. Many of my pieces appear simultaneously ancient and futuristic as they echo the aesthetics of the films they reference. My rings reflect the personas of my favourite film heroes and villains. The Barbarella ring was inspired by the heroine played by Jane Fonda in the 1968 film 'Barbarella', directed by Roger Vadim.
Tessa is represented by Pieces of Eight.
