................. NEOCLASSICAL COUTURE ................

ROSIE SANDERS creates neoclassically inspired luxury jewellery with a contemporary feminine edge. Each collection celebrates scrolls as enduring symbols of opulence, femininity and power, what Rosie refers to as ‘Neoclassical Couture’.
Bold structured motifs are brought to life with traditional hand carving and hand forging techniques that characterise her collections made using precious metals, enamel, specially cut gemstones and reclaimed exotic hardwoods.
Designed to offer contemporary style adventurers a range of subversive statement pieces and tiny trinkets, each collection showcases a range of catwalk quality jewels that highlight a strong capsule collection of transitional day and evening pieces.
Combining her background in fine art and visual anthropology, Rosie explains the development of her brand, “I am interested in the process of finding something extremely modern through something very historical. I’m fascinated by how the foundations of one era are based on another, how the future of fashion, identity and power builds on the past.” Image courtesy of Gem Alley/ Martner & Mowat
