Ruth Hollywood is an award winning contemporary jeweller, specialising in vibrant, geometric jewellery made from recycled silver and brightly coloured resin. Originally from Scotland, she is now based in the Drôme Provençale in the South of France.
Whilst her inspiration changes from collection to collection, Ruth’s main influences are science, architecture and modern art. Colour theory and grid formations are continuing themes from which she develops shapes and structures.
Dedicated to reducing the environmental impact of her practice, Ruth uses responsibly sourced and sustainable recycled silver. Additionally she adopts ethical principles throughout her work from eco friendly processes to recycled packaging.
Ruth graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a BA (HONS) in Silversmithing and Jewellery. 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 small selection of shops and galleries throughout the UK and Europe. As well as her ready to wear range, Ruth also takes commissions for custom colours and bespoke pieces.
