After acquiring the license for Miss America Jewelry, she began designing crowns for pageants worldwide. No stranger to pageantry herself, Holly was crowned “Ms. New York 1997”, “Ms. Connecticut 1998”, and “America’s Perfect Lady” in 1998. As a designer, she created the Red Ribbon Awareness pin for AIDS research at AMFAR alongside Elizabeth Taylor and Elton John. She has also worked with The Children’s Defense Fund, American Cancer Society, Greenpeace, and countless other organizations. An avid world traveler and vivacious collector, Holly currently resides in the Central West End neighborhood of St. Louis where she continues to run her business, Holly Hardwick Crowns.
