Holly Suzanna Clifford
After graduating from the Birmingham School of Jewellery in 2016 I set up my first workshop in the versatile garden shed. After a couple of years building up my business, I decided to make the move to Sheffield and now enjoy making in a spacious, warm studio at Yorkshire Artspace.
I consider my work to be wearable art. Each new piece is utterly different from the last. Vivid paintings are built up inside layers of ec-resin; creating awesome depth and life within the pieces. These elements are combined with hand-worked silver, resulting in extraordinary creations for people with an eye for uncommon treasures.
I’m inspired by botanic gardens; the beauty of the plant life & the otherworldly, ethereal quality of glasshouses. My ideas come from outside the realm of jewellery; illustration, great painters such as Monet and Klimt and old dioramic books.
