Jessica Poole - Diamond Jeweller 22nd Dec 2009
Jessica Poole
The scholarship winning jeweller on learning new tecniques in diamond setting.

Jeweller and goldsmith, Jessica Poole, has done work for the likes of Boodles, De Beers and Bulgari. But keen to develop her skills even further, she applied for, and was awarded a Queen Elizabeth Trust Scholarship to study the highly specialized technique of 'micro pavé' in Belgium. It's the art of setting tiny diamonds into pieces of jewellery and she hopes to bring her knowledge back to Britain where very few people know how to do it. She joins Jane to talk about her career as a jeweller and the diamonds she'll be working with.
