Molly Coombs Marr is a jewellery designer-maker and Australiana enthusiast. Her love of this sunburnt country started young when her parents surrounded her and her sisters with all things Mem Fox, Gumnut Babies, Ken Done and fairy-bread. Now Molly channels those experiences towards hand-making jewellery inspired by her favourite parts of Australia.
As a self-described "bird-nerd" Molly’s collection of Australiana designs centre largely around our unique native flora and fauna. Each handmade piece is influenced by Molly’s love of sculpture, wearable art, the breathtaking Australian landscape, and the iconic, bold and bright Australiana movement of the 80s and 90s pioneered by great Australian artists like Ken Done, Jenny Kee, Linda Jackson and Reg Mombassa. Molly’s aim is to encourage people to embrace and explore the true Australian experience and take Australiana from daggy to snazzy.
