Hali Emminger is the designer and founder behind Hechizo accessories, which she established in 2014. Combining ceramics, metals and textiles into items made to adorn, Hechizo pieces are the mementos of Hali's deep interest in materials and processes. She draws inspiration from many global traditions of adornment, pottery and costume. Her designs elevate somewhat less-precious materials - nodding to the value of the hand-crafted. Hali resides in Richmond, VA with her husband and daughters, and works out of a sun-filled studio which she shares with members of her family who are also makers. The daughter of a carpenter and granddaughter of two generations of tailors, she enjoys carrying on a tradition of handcrafting objects made to be used, worn and appreciated.
