‘Never let go of that fiery sadness called desire’ – Patti Smith
A rebellious spirit of individuality and independence forms the backbone of Hannah Martin London. Marrying the best of traditional craftsmanship with an innovative design sensibility all of her own, designer Hannah Martin set out to build the world’s first jewellery house dedicated to the exploration of androgyny in design.
With her strong founding concept of designing “jewellery for men, that girlfriend’s will steal”, her raison d’etre as a designer has always been to create decadent, beautifully crafted treasures, that do not compromise masculinity but luxuriate in it.
A graduate of London’s renowned Central St Martins, Hannah Martin perfected her craft in Paris high above the Place Vendome in the design studios of one the world’s most fabled jewellers. London, however, is where her brand is rooted physically and spiritually.
A story-teller at heart, inspired by music, architecture, literature and her passion for the darker side of culture, Hannah’s jewelry maintains a uniquely timeless feel. “I try to achieve a certain sculptural elegance to each piece I design, one that can’t be tied to a specific period or style. My dream is that each piece is enjoyed fully by its owner and then passed to the next generation where the pleasure it brings is continued “.
Hannah Martin London is a cult. A brand with a definitive point of view, a compelling creative vision and an intelligent aesthetic language that speaks of grown-up cool, sensuality and a hint of rock n’roll.
Using only the finest quality stones and materials, each piece is handcrafted in London by Hannah’s team of accomplished craftsmen, to a strict limited edition. At the foundations of this British-founded, British-made brand is the staunch belief that it is quality that counts in today’s world of over-production and over-consumption: beautifully crafted items, made with integrity and made to last.
