Holly Suzanna Clifford

Holly describes herself as an Art Jeweller, crafting pieces of delicate and detailed wearable art that celebrates the curious attraction we have to plants and the natural world. Encompassing ideas from outside the realm of jewellery, her work draws from illustration, great painters such as Monet and Klimt, as well as from old dioramic books. Drawing and painting are an integral part of her creative process so she has developed ways to incorporate them into the jewellery itself.

Her work is inspired by both the beauty and chaos of gardens, being drawn to glasshouses and how these structures contrast against the abundance of botanical life trapped within. Holly focusses on scenes inside greenhouses, capturing the foggy nature of the glass and the foliage pressed up against the glass. She strives to capture the beauty of this combination using hand-painted scenes encased in resin, often combined with minimal metalwork or intricately pierced sheet. The translucent nature of the materials allows light to penetrate and play through the pieces; highlighting details within the paintwork and reflecting the layered, ephemeral elements of glasshouses. The methods used in the production of her work mean that each piece is a completely unique item of wearable art.
