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 am a woman, and this woman loves to excessively do life, and
I feel this is reflected in my designs.
I have an ostentatious approach to design. Its theatrical and demanding of an audience. Yep, that's me.
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 jewelery by hand with careful detail and I bring old world techniques to new world style.
Nothing brings me more joy then a commission piece, so if your feeling what I'm feeling get on it, email me and lets make it happen.
