Hannah 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 that comes with such a large family. The dingy fishing paraphernalia that littered their backyard was a playground of inspiration: gritty snapshots of beauty against the clean backdrop of their hometown of Nantucket. These familiar moments inspired her to create beauty of her own.

With the help of a bead book she was given as a gift on her 6th birthday, Hannah started making simple earrings and necklaces for her friends and family. Over time, her basic designs evolved into sophisticated metalwork. She graduated from Umass Dartmouth in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in Jewelry/Metals. Immediately upon graduating, Hannah 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. She is currently working out of her studio on Harrison Ave. in Boston’s South End.
