Holly Matthews Collaboration

Posted: Thursday, 28 March 2019 @ 12:09

We are very excited this month to be working with positivity and mindset coach, Holly Matthews, on a necklace collaboration.

Holly is someone we hugely admire, since we got to know her over a year ago.

A TV actress, award winning vlogger, business and mindset coach, speaker, Founder of ‘The Happy Me’ Project, Holly is also Mum to two young girls.

She started acting at 11 years old, in award-winning Byker Grove, then went on to play roles in Waterloo Road, Casualty, Doctors and The Bill. She now creates amazing content as a vlogger: a finalist in the Mumsnet Vlogger awards, Holly works with Channel Mum, creating brilliant mum-based video content each month. Her YouTube channel has had over 1.9 million views.

In July 2017, Holly’s world changed forever, when her husband Ross passed away.

Ross had brain cancer for 3.5 years, and died in Myton Hospice, Warwick, with Holly by his side. He was the son of ex-Aston Villa and Coventry City player Andy Blair.

Holly has somehow managed to come through the tragedy with a positive and determined mindset, focused on moving forwards, while she supports her two daughters. As a mindset coach, she inspires people to find the positives in life, and to find ways of keeping on going, no matter what life throws at you.

We love Holly’s passion, her positive attitude, her can-do mentality, and her ‘whatever it takes’ determination in life. We have been supporting her ‘Happy Me’ workshops for the last year, with free gifts and competition prizes.

Holly Matthews  x Mantra Jewellery

Now, the time is right to bring Holly’s unique approach together with Mantra, to create her own piece of inspirational jewellery.

Holly Matthews - Mantra JewelleryWe are working with Holly on three or four design ideas, with the aim of creating two inspiring necklaces.

One design features the word, ‘Unbreakable’, as a clear reminder to yourself of how strong, courageous and powerful you are, even if you don’t feel it right now.

Another design to bring this message to life is a diamond shape – as diamonds are formed by sheer pressure on carbon, over centuries. It is a great analogy to represent the beauty that can come from stress and pressure in life.

A further design idea uses a turtle to portray resilience. Turtles have long been a symbol of longevity, endurance, persistence and the continuation of life - sometimes against incredible odds. By design, they are survivors, their hard shell offering protection against predators. A turtle fossil is also one of the oldest ever found, showing its incredible endurance.

In terms of timing - we are at the stage where Holly is considering the designs herself, to see which one resonates most with her; and asking her followers for their thoughts and feedback.

Keep an eye on our social media, to find out which designs we go for, and when they are launching. We can’t wait to see what you all think!
