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.
