I'm Hanna Dawson-Smith the owner , designer and maker of each Halo & Hurt piece and I'm based in Melbourne, Australia.
My inspiration comes from so many avenues. I love the idea of adornment stripped down to its essence, a grandeur display of wealth and luxury designed to impress. I personally love to excessively do life, and I feel this is reflected in my designs. Ostentatious in approach and demanding of an audience.
Colour..... show me the colour! I mix metals, silver, all the golds, oxidised greys and blacks. Clash those colours, textures and build it upwards... to the sky. Bigger is always better. I have a flamboyant love affair with costume and fashion and I'm not afraid to show it.
I create each piece of Halo & Hurt jewellery by hand with careful detail bringing old world techniques to new world style.
I also specialize in creating custom bespoke pieces working directly with my clients so if your feeling what I'm feeling get on it, email me and lets make it happen.
