HOLLY STANT

Inspired by her travles, Holly translates her journeys in to wearable art pieces created from maps, photos, wood and acrylic.

About Holly Stant

Holly is a mixed media contemporary jewellery designer and maker from Colchester, Essex.

Her main source of inspiration comes from her travels to various, yet significant, destinations; places that have deep emotional connection. By digging deep into the information she gathers on her travels, interesting sources help define and influence the wearable art she creates.

Holly’s pieces of jewellery are an assemblage of her own imagery, map symbols, walks and layouts from various maps. Each piece holds their own story that is meaningful to Holly, but that story is open to interpretation by the wearer.

Colour is a key feature in Holly’s jewellery. She carefully selects colours that either contrast or unite the colours that are depicted in each photograph to bring it to life and add embellishment.

Holly uses a variation of materials such as wood, acrylic and found/gathered objects. Her techniques vary from laser cutting and etching, to piercing, to in-laying.

All the materials, colours and techniques she uses come together to tell a story.
