Alis Volat Propriis
After spending more than two decades in senior-level corporate HR positions, Holly Juday was encouraged to find a creative outlet following a major health scare. After a one-day introductory course in beading, she was hooked. Holly has trained at the London Jewellery School in techniques such as wire wrapping, silver metal clay, and cold enamel (resin). She is self-taught in the art of chain maille and was recently privately tutored in the Turkish art of Ebru (paper marbling).
Holly prefers to source her own materials where possible, with recent visits to the Czech Republic, Turkey, and the US. She takes inspiration from classical, antique designs and enjoys combining techniques and mediums into unique creations.
Alis Volat Propriis - "she flies with her own wings." Handmade artisan jewellery, specialising in chain maille, fine silver, wire wrapping/knitting, pearls - and putting them together into one-of-a-kind, unique treasures.
