Hannah Martin: the hidden secrets of the LA music scene
Music has always been a massive source of inspiration for jewellery designer Hannah Martin. After graduating from Central Saint Martins and then cutting her teeth in Paris at Cartier, she set up her eponymous own line in London in 2006 for which she has created hundreds of high-end pieces, many of them imbued with the sensibility of rock’n’roll. Her collection A New Act of Rebellion features classic punk motifs such as gold safety pins and luxurious bolts, and was launched with a video featuring Jehnny Beth of post-punk band Savages. We talked to Hannah about a particular source of inspiration for her – the alternative Los Angeles music scene – and the best places to experience it.
