To understand the Holliegraphic brand it is integral to understand the maker and her development.
At an early age, Hollie knew she was supposed to be a creator when she was given a toy soap making machine. She ground up every piece of soap in her home and turned them into shapes of stars, hearts and flowers. From this early introduction to seeing a product from beginning to end, Hollie was always on the hunt for the next thing she could make, which ultimately led her to illustration when she was 15. She spent the next 10 years refining her skills in detailed portraiture, but she didn’t feel like a true artist in the actual sense in the 21st century setting and therefore felt like she wasn’t maximising her creativity.
In 2016, Hollie had a brainwave after one of too many rings fell off her tiny fingers. She decided to learn how to make her own rings to custom fit ensuring this phenomenon was not going to be a constant bane in her life. After weeks of manically surfing the web, she made her very first ring! It was then, she realised this skill was the perfect marriage of her fine motor skills that she had developed with her portraiture and the free form nature of lost wax casting to express her creativity.
Since then, Hollie’s style has changed numerous times and will continue to change as her inspiration evolves. Her current obsession is gardens, flowers, organic forms, mixed with her love of illustration and iconography.
Hollie now prides herself on designing modern, freeform jewellery for people to express who they are as a person.
To Hollie, jewellery is special. It is to be cherished, to show love, care for others and to show love and care for yourself. Hollie feels it is a dream come true to be able to give you this special gift by doing what she loves!
