Portrait of Owner of Beam and BasketFor as long as she can remember, Jessica Roberts has had a passion for anything creative. In 2013, she moved to Knoxville and found her forever home nestled in the mountains of East Tennessee.  Jessica is a real estate photographer and sign maker turned master curator/gift designer. What started as a handmade sign business quickly expanded into a curated gifts business as more of her real estate clients expressed a need for closing gifts that elevated their brand but didn’t take time to assemble. 

At Beam & Basket we believe in supporting our local community by supporting other artisans, makers, and small businesses. We believe that gifting should be easy and that businesses deserve client gift options that compliment their brand. We love that giddy feeling we get when we discover a new brand that offers a great product, gives back to the community, while also being good for the environment. Or when we come up with a gifting solution that gives a client more time to enjoy the finer things in life. We believe that we all could use a little more kindness, a little more laughter, and a lot more joy. 

Jessica currently runs the business with her husband John Roberts and her trusty production assistant, Summer.
