Ruth Hollywood makes jewellery inspired by natural geometry. Synthesising 100% recycled silver and colourful hand-mixed resin, her work moves over the boundaries between science, nature and art.

Ruth 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.

The perfect microscopic patterns of atoms and crystals have found their way into Ruth’s newest collections, the inspiration evolving into the form. In her Glasgow studio, she puts new technology to work in harmony with traditional techniques.

Ruth’s work has a strong appeal to anyone who loves colour and cares about sustainability. Her pieces make a bold and subtle statement.

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 artists such 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.

Ruth will launch new lines of earrings, pendants, rings and bangles as well as a new shade of pink resin at Design Junction from the 22nd-25th September 2016 during the London Design Festival.
