The New Piercing Subculture With Hannah Martin
Hosted by Gem X Core Member Amy Ainscough & Jeweller Hannah Martin
An intimate evening of self expression with the iconic @hannahmartinpierced. Members gathered in Martin’s Clerkenwell studio to view her new collection of bodily adornments and get pierced in-house.
Hannah feels that getting pierced is a gift that you give yourself. The ritual of piercing throughout time has been the center of many cultures and traditions, and her work is an effort to return to the connection that this act brings. To celebrate this, she created fine jewelry works that focuses on quality and designs that draw joy. Hannah believes that if we’re going to put anything into our bodies, it should be beautifully made with passion, enthusiasm and by someone who has a love of their craft. This rang true as she spoke about her recent collaboration with musician Guy Berryman. A huge thank you to Hannah and her team for hosting us with such warmth and enthusiasm.
