Hannah Blount has been creating jewelry since she was a young child. The daughter of a fisherman and a seamstress, Hannah was raised in the tradition of hand skills, hard work, and dedication. In their weathered island home, she and her six siblings learned how to entertain themselves amidst the chaos of such a large family. The dingy fishing paraphernalia that littered their yard was a playground of inspiration: gritty snapshots of beauty against the clean backdrop of their hometown of Nantucket led Hannah to create beauty of her own.
With the help of a book gifted to her, Hannah started making earrings and necklaces for her friends and family; basic designs evolved into sophisticated metalwork. She graduated from UMass Dartmouth in 2008 with a bachelor's degree in Jewelry/Metals and at once built up her studio and began Hannah Blount Jewelry. Over the following years she has created a body of work that encompasses an organic and refined aesthetic.
