About

Our Story

HEX is about dichotomies brought together in unexpectedly beautiful ways to reflect the spectrum that lies between natural & industrial, feminine & masculine, rough & shine.

Each piece is inspired by and named after a natural geologic or aquatic body.

HEX Metals & Minerals incorporates running themes of strength, androgyny, grace, minimalism, and surprise.

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba | Loving and living in Vancouver, British Columbia.

    If there is one thing I am good at, it's making accidents look purposeful. The raw crystals I use are each challenges of their own. I love getting to know each crystal's roughness, and turning its 'flaws' into what makes the end piece beautiful.

◄Thank you for visiting HEX Metals & Minerals! In this shop, I pair grace and utility for uniquely beautiful pieces you can wear everyday.

I make my pieces for people of all genders and ages in mind. The pieces in this shop are named after natural aquatic and geologic formations in the world, not people.

$1 from each sale will be donated to Resource Assistance for Youth (RAY), a Winnipeg-based organization that helps street youth in need of housing, job, counselling, and skills support. www.rayinc.ca

Returns and exchanges
◄RETURN POLICY
All sales are final. Returns are not accepted.

Shipping and handling costs are not refundable and HEX Metals & Minerals is not responsible for return shipping.

◄ LOSSES
Once an item has left my studio it is out of my control. I cannot be held responsible for lost items via the Canada Post.

◄BREAKAGE
I package my items safely in plastic bags inside bubble mailers to minimize the risk of breakage. However, all items are breakable with enough force and with rough sustained wear. Please treat your jewelry carefully to avoid breakage and avoid getting them wet, pulling on chains, take precautions when wearing loose knits, etc. Crystals that may appear 'broken' are actually in their natural form. I use rough stones which are by definition unpolished. Extra facets, chips, etc., are not defects. My jewellery is not guaranteed to last indefinitely.

In rare cases the postal service can cause damage to items. I cannot control these random incidents; however, I will refund you your money or send you a new item if you provide me with a clear image of the breakage. Some items I will request be sent back to me because of material scarcity / if I don't have enough stock material to remake your item. I can also advise you on simple ways to repair your piece without having to go through the hassle of sending it back for repairs. Often this just involves taking pliers and bending a jump ring back into shape.

In the case that you need to send the item back to me for repairs, I am not liable for packages returned due to customer errors in shipping addresses, customer absence, or package refusal.
Payment
◄I accept Paypal (preferred), credit card, and Etsy Gift Card.
Shipping
◄Orders will be sent via Canada Post by air. To addresses within Canada, packages typically take 2-7 business days to arrive. Packages shipped to a US or International address may take longer, possibly 6-10 business days. If you need your order to be shipped faster than this (e.g. by priority or express post), please let me know before you submit your order so I can adjust shipping fees. I will contact you with the new shipping fee. This is usually around $17 CAD. I am not responsible for any customs costs that may be added on at the border.

Shipping costs cover packaging materials, photographers' fees, photo editors' wages, gas costs used to travel to the post office and my stone supplier, time spent cleaning stones, office supplies, and more.

After payment has cleared on made-to-order items, I will ship your item(s).

A tracking number is NOT provided with orders less than $150. I can provide a tracking number at additional cost. Please message me if you would like that. I have never had a problem with an item getting lost in the mail.
Additional policies and FAQs
◄ALLERGY INFORMATION
HEX uses primarily plated brass and aluminum and occasionally steel, iron, and copper. Please make sure that you review the item before purchasing (custom orders for sterling silver chain can be placed, but at an extra charge). If you have questions, feel free to send me a message. Earring backs are nickel free.

◄METAL INFO
Some of my pieces are made with copper and brass. Copper and brass will naturally oxidize over time and acquire a patina. You can remove this with fine steel wool or a mixture of vinegar and salt. However I believe that patina adds a unique dimension to your piece!

◄QUICK REPAIRS
If the exchange date has passed and a chain link or jump ring has broken, it's simple to repair it yourself with pliers. Simply grasp the next link with a pair of pliers and twist until the ends separate. Insert the other loose end of the chain and close the open loop with the pliers.

◄SHOP REVIEWS
Please contact me before leaving negative feedback if you have a problem with your order. We will work something out so you can be satisfied. A negative review closes the case and shuts down communication.
