Hex Cavelli - the name represents an alter ego, used to capture creativity and confidence when it appeared to be lacking. Designer, Jane Cooper, used an untamed persona to tap into new skills and styles, building a brand of hand crafted jewellery and prints. 

After studying a for a BA degree in Textile Design at Falmouth University she followed a twisted route of mixed media, printmaking and classic jewellery design before finding her calling with lost wax carving. 

The love of texture and detail pushes through to the designs, giving extra dimensions and character not found elsewhere. The Hex Cavelli jewellery is created with functionality in mind to be worn with effortless style and comfort day in, day out. 

The strength and dark nature of the designs is inspired not only by the local community of fearless characters but also by blood. A direct descendant of one of the most notorious smuggling families of Kimmeridge Bay, the Coopers ruled the Dorset shores then (with the occasional prison stint) and that fearless blood thrived in the generations of Coopers since.
