“Hi there! I’m Emma, but many call me Hex. I graduated from the Adv Dip of Jewellery and Object Design at Melb Poly about 4 years ago and have been crafting the amuletic armour behind Hex Arcana ever since. I am heavily influenced by folklore, mythology, alchemy, astrology and occult symbology.
Work and study wise I have a varied background in photography, community gardening, permaculture and herbalism. I currently work in Disability/Mental Health and am very passionate about the intersections of art, mental health and community resilience. My own personal mental illness journey brought me to jewellery, and through my work I aim to help others find strength and personal empowerment through the talismanic magic I craft.”
