We are a company that believes in sustainable and eco-friendly jewelry practices. As a member of the Canadian Jewellers Association, we are committed to the highest industry ethics and social responsibility, and therefore agree to:

  • Maintain the highest level of personal integrity, honesty and business ethics

Katherine

She/Her

Designer/Founder 

Libra/Year of the Ox/INFP


I find inspiration mostly through nature, art, architecture and past travels. Anything could spark inspiration though... Like the way a leaf curves, or the colors of the sunset.

My ideal day off is sitting out on our sunny patio with an iced coffee, a good book, and with Meli and T by my side. 

My favourite F&D piece is the Chain Ring in yellow gold.

  

Kelly

She/Her

Assistant Designer

Aquarius/Year of the Rooster/INFP


We often overlap and all help each other since we are such a close team. However, some of my main focuses have been one-on-one consultations with clients, searching for unique stones and taking product photos for our ready to wear collections. 

If my inspiration were a mood board, attached would be soft pastel and neutral colours, strands of organza and hand-dyed silk, photos of my friends laughter during golden hour and an assortment of dried flowers. 

My ideal day off is camping with my sister and closest friends under a clear night sky.

My favourite F&D piece is the Aurora Necklace.

 

Meli Francis Doodlebean

She/Her

F&D Dreamgirl/Snack Lover/Best Friend/Elegant Angel

Cancer/Year of the Sheep/ENTP

I love being in the studio with the team. I bring smiles, kisses, and happiness everywhere I go. If you have a treat, I’ll eat it. If you want a cuddle, I’ll give it. I enjoy sharing my love with everyone.

My ideal weekend would include playing in the sun with Papa T and Mama K and swimming in the ocean.

My favourite F&D piece is the Meli Hair Claws.

  

Xanthe 

She/Her

Art Director/Stylist

Sagittarius/Year of the Snake/INFP


Foe & Dear is a place for me to explore various art practices and weave them into our everyday visuals. Whether it’s writing, styling, or creating campaigns, storytelling is at the forefront of my work. Creating art with our team is a dream come true. 

I find inspiration in an array of forms. I’ll resonate with a glimpse of light dancing across my bedroom wall, the soft warmth of morning sun, it's endless. It’s all connected to the beauty of life.

My ideal day would include exploring nature, reading poetry, and spending time with my friends and family.

My favourite F&D piece is the Cigar Band Ring in yellow gold.   

 

Coral 

She/Her or They/Them

Web Content/Admin

Pisces/Year of the Dog/INFJ


I work remotely for Foe & Dear creating content for our social media and website focusing on illustration and education while also working on our digital organization, this involves a satisfying amount of spreadsheets. I have a background in Illustration and love working with my hands.

I find inspiration in natural textures found in the landscape, like the way the tide leaves ripples in the sand. When I search for inspiration it is typically by going through books on historical sculpture and ceramics.

My ideal day-off starts with a late morning coffee and spending most of the day lounging barefoot in the grass reading short essays and napping. 

My favourite F&D piece is the Paisley Ring.

 

Lyndsey 

She/Her

Studio Assistant

Taurus/Year of the Rooster/INFP-T

 
Things Lyndsey loves - Old 70's movies, disco, tiktok, and gouache painting.

My ideal day off is drinking at three different coffee shops all in one day, living my "main character" fantasy.

My Favourite F&D piece is the Baby Sapphire Necklace.

 

Jen 

She/Her

Social Media Manager

Cancer/Year of the Rat/INFP

 
I find most of my inspiration in nature - especially during the spring and summer months spent in my garden - or in the pages of a good book when the rain comes out.

My ideal day off includes a slow morning, lots of coffee, time for creativity, and good company. 

My Favourite F&D piece is the Shell Charm Necklace.
