Holly Ryan the label was born out of a need for clean, contemporary jewellery that is timeless yet unique. Based in simplicity and wearability, each piece is carefully considered and aims to capture modern architecture in a wearable context.
Holly Ryan completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts: Fashion Design in 2010 at QUT. She launched her eponymous jewellery label soon after in 2011, having been taught the art of silver smithing by her parents who both studied in Mexico in the 80’s.
The brand embraces functional design with a strong focus on high quality materials and the very best craftsmanship. Ryan aims to create jewellery designs which serve as memorable understatements. Refined, versatile and honest goods, built to last, but never boring. Holly believes that a piece of jewellery can transcend mere adornment to become part of the wearer: a signature. Designing pieces that are distinctive and subtle, yet enduring enough to suggest self-knowledge in their owner.
Architectural, linear, sculptural, geometric, minimal, and very polished. There are no embellishments. Each piece is specially handcrafted to order from locally sourced sustainably produced materials.
