Holly Ryan on grief, authenticity and building a sustainable and ethical jewellery brand.

For episode 31 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with talented maker, jeweller and artist, Holly Ryan. Holly’s namesake jewellery line and in-demand sculptures define what it means to create consciously. Handmade in Australia using sustainable materials, Holly creates heirlooms. Her company’s stance on circularity and low waste practices are the example.

Holly generously shares her creative processes, how she maintains her authenticity while working in fashion, dealing with copycats, the disappointing need for us to put on a brave face even in times of grief, how she channelled her pain into her work, our collective tendency to lean on alcohol during hard times, and so much more.

Zanita Whittington on her disinterest in being accepted and why she sees her ADHD diagnosis as a strength.

For episode 30 of Offline, host Alison Rice sits down with creative director, photographer and Australia’s OG fashion blogger, Zanita Whittington. Currently based in New York, Zanita is a force and continues to pioneer how we think about the intersection of creativity and social influence.

Alison and Zanita discuss pushing creative boundaries, her long-held disinterest in being “accepted” as a blogger, why she sees her ADHD diagnosis as a strength, how to explain our needs to the people in our lives, why it is time to de-stigmatise therapy, life in New York City and the importance of not only having mentors, but also sharing our knowledge with mentees.
