Hannah Martin on Her Latest Collection of Omniscient Jewelry (VIDEO)

Posted: 06/23/11 03:58 AM ET


Crane.tv meets up with London-based Hannah Martin whose rock'n'roll chic jewellery designs make way for luxury with an edge.

After graduating from the prestigious Central Saint Martins College for Art & Design in London, Martin began her career working for brands such as Cartier, Givenchy and TAG Heuer. The result of many years in the luxury industry, accompanied by a great passion for music, brought about her very own enigmatic and audacious, yet refined collections. The designer's bold and artistically inspired approach to communicating her creations, attracted an interesting mixture of collaborations with brands the likes of Coco de Mer, Swarovski and rock icons such as Pete Doherty.

Reputable for the great narratives behind her work, Martin's latest and fifth collection, 'The Man Who Knows Everything,' is based on 18th-century theosophist The Count of Saint-Germain - one of the most mysterious characters in modern history. Apart from working alongside photographer Joss McKinley for the collection's lookbook, Martin decided to elaborate 'The Man Who Knows Everything' into a conceptual fashion short, in collaboration with German designer Moritz Waldemeyer.

Crane.tv's choice: 'Euphoria of Lights,' the Comte's pyramid ring, which is an 18 carat red gold ring adorned with tourmalines, rubies and orange sapphires.
