The inspiration behind the House Holloway Collection
When I was a little girl I loved to play with my Fischer-Price® castle. My favorite piece was the pink dragon. You know the one. As a child and now as an adult I am allured by the magical, mythical world that existed long ago. The world in which dragons roamed earth and sky, where knights fought for their kings and castle lands stretched out forever. It was not a surprise that I was immediately hooked on the HBO® series Game Of Thrones®.
When I was in Tucson, AZ this February I found a stone that made me immediately think of the highly detailed, scaly, rough, and colorful hide that a dragon might have. A light went off in my head. I would create a collection of jewelry around this stone and bring to life the world of fantasy and myth.
I'm excited to announce House Holloway! - a brand new collection now available from Jill Griffin Jewelry. Each piece represents a different female or male persona with the strength and determination to thrive in a time from long ago. Designing and developing this collection brought out a different part of my creative side that goes beyond my usual course in design. It has been a very rewarding experience and I am thrilled to share it with you!
