My name is Hanna Dawson-Smith and I’m the owner, designer and creater of each Halo & Hurt piece. 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 is such an important design element for me. 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 drawing inspiration from old and new trends and a dash of pop culture.
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 ‘one of a kind’ pieces working directly with my clients. If your feeling what I'm feeling please get on it, email me and lets make it happen.
