Hali Emminger is the chief designer and fabricator behind Hechizo accessories. Combining ceramics, metals and textiles into items made to adorn, Hechizo pieces are the mementos of an exploration with materials and processes. Hali draws from abundantly rich global traditions of adornment and costume in both her jewelry and sculptural work, playfully elevating somewhat less-precious materials by showcasing them in her designs. The daughter of a carpenter and granddaughter of two generations of tailors, Hali continues a tradition of handcrafting objects - and hopefully keepsakes - with her collections for Hechizo. Some of the designers’ favorite things include salsa verde, wishing on 11:11, bulería flamenco and hearing jokes told by kids.
