Hi there, I’m Hali Emminger the designer and founder behind Hechizo accessories. Combining ceramics, metals and textiles into items made to adorn, Hechizo pieces are the mementos of my deep interest in materials and processes. I draw inspiration from many global traditions of adornment, pottery and costume. My designs elevate somewhat less-precious materials such as ceramic cabochons set like gemstones - nodding to the value of the hand-crafted. The daughter of a carpenter and granddaughter of two generations of tailors, I enjoy carrying on a tradition of handcrafting objects made to be used, worn and appreciated.
I reside in Richmond, VA with my husband and daughter and work out of a sun-filled studio which I share with members of my family who are also makers.
