Founded in 2008 JEX Studio is a line designed by Canadian Prairie-born, London, UK-based artist & designer Amanda Jex. The JEX aesthetic is informed by everything from Amanda’s extensive world travels, to her time spent living between the pristine Rocky Mountains of Banff, Alberta, amongst the bustling West Coast beauty of Vancouver, BC and within the vibrant street art filled neighbourhoods of Melbourne, Australia. Beyond that, she draws her inspiration from the everyday, focusing on the symbolic relationships between nature, art, music and her own familial heritage.
M I S S I O N
Amanda strives to create pieces that are beautiful, modern and unique while retaining a focus on social and environmental consciousness. Throughout all her designs she works to maintain a connection to organics and traditional techniques, preferring to work primarily with the ancient lost wax casting method using locally sourced, natural materials; sustainable, reclaimed precious metals, hand worked & raw semi-precious stones, artifacts & re-purposed articles found throughout her travels. All items are made in limited quantities, with the utmost quality and care at our small Jex Studio in East London.

The pieces, simultaneously feminine and architectural, minimal and finely detailed, familiar and modern, are meant to be worn and interpreted by the wearer. Worn as a personal talisman or canvas upon which the person who wears it can project their own personality, style and emotive qualities. Pieces for the wanderlust in all of us.
