I want everything on Sydney jewellery designer Holly Ryan’s Christmas wishlist

WORDS BY CAIT EMMA BURKE

Essentials for your summer soirees.

For a year that has moved at the pace of a diseased snail (apologies for that visceral imagery), Christmas time is approaching unbelievably quickly. Aside from gorging ourselves on all manner of delicious food and drink and packing more reading into a few days than you have the entire year, the festive season means purchasing presents, and that’s not always a walk in the park.

If like me, you’re stuck on ideas when it comes to gift-giving this year, seeing what other people – particularly interesting, stylish people – have on their personal Christmas wishlists can provide some much-needed inspiration.

This (and the fact that I’m very nosy) is why I’ve asked a selection of Australian creatives to share what they’d like to find under their trees this year. This week, we ask Sydney-based jewellery designer, sculptor and artist, Holly Ryan, about the things she’s eyeing off this Christmas. It’s a list that’s packed full of items perfect for Holly’s favourite type of event – a “summer soiree”.
