Enigmatic jewellery designer, Holly Budge, creates limited edition pieces 'inspired by life'. Her appetite for the extreme is evident in her bold designs and carefully selected materials sourced from the farthest reaches of the planet. By combining a creative spirit with her curiosity for the world, Holly enables you to garnish yourself in adventure.
Her eco-chic designs are handcrafted in her Hampshire based studio, using carefully and ethically sourced materials, including vegetable ivory, leather, semi-precious gemstones and recycled sterling silver. Each piece is engrained with a unique story, inspired by Holly's adventures. In 2008, she became the first woman to skydive over Mount Everest and in 2009, galloped 1000kms across Mongolia on semi-wild Mongolian horses, finding turquoise and other local stones on the way.
Career history / Company history:
Holly’s voyage into jewellery design began alongside her mother, Linda, who introduced her to the exciting world of beads. The two started coming up with their own designs and discovered their mutual passion for colour, creativity and adventure, eventually leading to a successful business partnership. Twelve years on, Holly says that there has been a lot of education in terms of the materials and techniques they employ. They are both silversmiths and make their own glass beads for the designs.
