Growing up on a family homestead in south central Texas, the designer, Holly Rae Arthur, learned how to keep herself entertained in the pastures surrounding her where she would collect fossils, artifacts and curious rocks.  Holly has always had an affinity for craft, taking multiple art classes as a young child.  Her virtuosity led her to study and receive her Masters in Architecture.  While in graduate school she took her first jewellery-smithing course. The rest is history.  HARTH, a derivative of Holly’s name, was created in 2013.  Her adornments are inspired by her Texan roots with gestures towards artifacts and indigenous tools.  For the love of architecture, the line also nods to different building styles such as Art Deco and Renaissance.  Every piece of HARTH is designed and hand finished by Holly.
