Ruth Hollywood makes jewellery inspired by geometry. Combining 100% recycled silver and colourful hand-mixed resin, her work plays with the boundaries between science, nature and art. In her Glasgow studio, she puts new technology to work in harmony with traditional techniques.
Graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 2006, she lectured in art and jewellery before creating her first collection as an independent designer in 2013. Ruth is inspired by contemporary design and architecture, colour theory and such artists as Frank Stella. She also finds that her travels spark ideas, and the process of making itself leads her to further adventures in her practise.
She has received awards for Excellence in Design from The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, and was selected for the Crafts Council UK Hothouse programme in 2015. Her jewellery is stocked in a variety of shops and galleries across the world. She exhibits at trade shows regularly, and her work has been shown in London, Munich, Montreal and Sydney.
