My lifelong passion for fine jewelry was born from a unique childhood surrounded by exquisite tribal art. In this art, I saw the fine lines of nature reduced to their most elemental simplicity as dreamtime stories were conveyed and everyday objects were celebrated, becoming integral parts of human existence.
This, along with an early obsession for colored gemstones, inspired me to produce handmade jewelry throughout my early adulthood. My passion led me to New York City, later to Singapore, and back again. In addition to my own work, I spent years developing gold, bridal, and high-end jewelry at one of America’s foremost jewelry brands. Through a cultivated eye for the finest craftsmanship and most exceptional gemstones, these high standards continue to guide my work to this day.
Informed by my background and extensive travel throughout the world, as a designer, I am constantly inspired by hidden symbolism and universal themes that transcend cultural boundaries and connect us all in the human experience.
A good piece tells many stories, but most of all, it tells your own.
The vision for Hannah Allene is a modern fine jewelry company that embraces jewelry as a non-gendered means of self-expression. It is important that the wearer has autonomy in how they style their pieces. That is why everything I create is intended to be versatile and dynamic. Thoughtful use of precious materials combined with architectural forms create a signature, understated elegance that appeals to an individual’s sense of creativity and self-expression.
