Hali Emminger is the designer and founder behind Hechizo accessories. Combining ceramics, metals and textiles into items made to adorn, Hechizo pieces are the mementos of her deep interest in materials and processes. Hali draws inspiration from many global traditions of adornment, pottery and costume. Her 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, she enjoys carrying on a tradition of handcrafting objects made to be used, worn and appreciated.
Hali resides in Richmond, VA with her husband and daughter and work out of a sun-filled studio which is shared with members of her family who are also makers.
