Jessica Thomas


A full time creative, Jessica spent many years on the interior design team at OZ Architecture while spending her free time creating her own handmade jewelry line, Crow Jane. Eventually her handmade goods were so sought after she committed to Crow Jane full time, while also teaching at Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design, in their CIDA accredited BFA interior design program. In 2017, she began working as a contract interior designer for the in-house Punch Bowl Social design team and was integral to the success of many project openings across the country. In 2020 Jessica joined the FAM team, and is involved in all facets of the design process – concept to execution. When she isn’t planning her next collection, she enjoys making - things grow, cooking, music, art and spending time with her family, fur-babies, turtle and bees.

"What a pleasure it was to work with FAM! Megan and Frank are the perfect team - they have a unique ability to capture exactly what you want even when you don't know yourself. Their guided, collaborative process helps you to clarify your own ideas, and their creativity and great taste ensures that the end result will be both gorgeous and unique. Can't wait to work with them again!"
