The Holly Lane Story

Meet Tiffany Scott

Founder & Designer

Contrary to popular belief, the woman behind Holly Lane is not named “Holly”. Though she is called “Holly” often, she’s actually designer and Holly Lane founder, Tiffany Scott. Holly Lane is the name of the street where Tiffany and her family lived when she founded the business.

Tiffany was always drawn to art, but she suffered from the comparison trap in high school and “didn’t even dare try it.” In college, she studied business and eventually tiptoed into art classes at George Mason University where she earned an arts management degree. She began with woodworking. She eventually moved on to beadwork. “We were particularly broke that year,” Tiffany remembered. “I decided I would make beaded jewelry to give as gifts that Christmas.” Tiffany started playing with the combinations of colors and shapes and fell in love. She was eventually introduced to silver by a friend, and began making pendants to go along with her beadwork.

The Holly Lane story really began when Tiffany came to know the Lord. She did not grow up in a Christian home but met God because of people in her life that shared the Gospel with her.

She was doing a Bible study at church when she prayed “Lord, what is it I’m supposed to be doing?” She was in the throes of life as a stay at home mom, homeschooling her young children, and working in silver. As clear as it could be, she heard the Lord say, “Go home and do this for me.” 

“I knew right away I was meant to create opportunities to witness,” said Tiffany. She set out to create jewelry pieces that would be just different enough that they would catch someone's attention, and become conversation starters to create natural opportunities to talk about the verses they were based on. Because her life had been changed by conversations with those who were bold and kind in sharing their faith, Tiffany wanted to use the talents God gave her to create easy and natural opportunities for others to share their faith.

Tiffany started by creating a handful of pieces and made them available at a few small craft shows at churches. With no expectations and no large aspirations, she has been continually blown away by the way that Holly Lane designs resonate with the many people she meets in person year after year.

As a designer, Tiffany’s aesthetic is handcrafted, detailed and earthy. She is drawn to quirky, colorful styles with beading, and a meaningful, artisan look in her silver designs.

Tiffany and her husband live on ten acres in Montpelier, Virginia with their five children, three dogs and three cats. “We’re trying to raise great kids who love Jesus,” said Tiffany. When she’s not designing jewelry and running Holly Lane, you might find Tiffany homeschooling her kids, elbow deep in her garden, or dreaming about her next traveling adventure.

Over 16 years since its beginning, Holly Lane has grown to include hundreds of designs based on over 75 different scripture themes.


The Holly Lane Family 


 

Meet Tif

Creative Director 

Tif curates the Holly Lane experience both online and in print, managing graphic design, product photography, and social media. A few of her favorite things are her four children, her husband, coffee and the outdoors.

Her favorite Holly Lane collection is the Birds of the Air Collection, as the verses Matthew 6:26-27 have always been an encouragement to her in all the different seasons of her life.

When she isn’t working hard in the Holly Lane studio photographing jewelry or creating beautiful marketing material, you might find her hanging out at the park, playing board games with her family, or letterpress printing in her garage studio.

“I am passionate about missions, and love that Holly Lane Jewelry offers an opportunity to wear the gospel and create simple, casual conversations about Jesus no matter where you are in the world!” -Tif 


Meet Tracey

Studio Manager

Tracey serves as the Studio Manager at Holly Lane overseeing all day to day business in the studio such as customer service, shipping, tracking inventory, and everything in between.

Tracey’s favorite Holly Lane piece is the Deep Waters Necklace. She loves the design and the message behind it: “I had gone through a bit of a rough season, but it was such comfort to know that God was with me through it all, and that I could lean on Him at times when my situation felt overwhelming.”

One of Tracey’s true passions is traveling, and she enjoys dreaming up and planning her next adventure. She also enjoys drinking tea, teaching herself ukulele, taking care of her numerous plants, and snuggling with her cat, Sweet Baby.

“It is such an honor to represent Christ in our work, and it is my desire to live out Colossians 3:23 and work as if working for the Lord. My hope is that it is apparent in everything I do at Holly Lane.” -Tracey

Meet Mary

Production Assistant

Mary helps craft each piece of jewelry in the Holly Lane Studio. She is a busy student starting her freshman year of college, studying to be a therapist for those with special needs.

A few of her favorite things are mani/pedis, and spending time with her grandparents. She has been a long-time supporter of Holly Lane, and is thrilled to have the opportunity to work in the Holly Lane studio!

Mary’s favorite Holly Lane piece is the Send Me Necklace. During this season of her life, it means a lot to her as it serves as a simple and dainty reminder of her promise to the Lord to be obedient no matter where He sends her.
