Hannah Grace Ryan

Since graduating with a BA(Hons) from Glasgow School of Art, I have exhibited my work throughout the UK and Europe, and have established my own workshop and studio in Glasgow, Scotland.

It was during my studies that I discovered the decorative technique of granulation. An art form used throughout the ancient world, granulation is the process of fusing together granules of silver or gold to create distinctive ornate structures.

For me, granulation is an intimate process. After several years of experimentation I developed my own method, and the result is a beautifully spontaneous and unpredictable way of making.

Whether working on bespoke commissions or through my own collection, I create jewellery which is uniquely compelling and completely individual.
