Marion Cage McCollam is a designer who lives and works in New Orleans. A practicing Architect and a graduate of Columbia University’s School of Architecture, she began designing jewelry in 2003 and has since branched out into decorative hardware and accessories for the home. She has a passion for materials and combining them in unexpected ways; her approach toward design is such that she is never comfortable limiting herself to one scale or medium. The purity and elegance in her jewelry designs, often derived from forms in nature, is akin to a kind of fluid architecture...with the human body as its landscape.
With the help of a bead book she was given as a gift, 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.
