Rosita Bonita is the glamorous alter-ego of designer Rowenna Harrison. This dove brooch is a symbol of friendship, peace, love, and romance abound. Each element is made separately from fine coloured leathers, before being combined. The dove and the heart are all individually embossed with gold foil, and the roses and forget-me-nots cut from soft leather, stiffened and formed by hand.

About the designer:
A life long love of drawing and making have equiped Rowena Harrison with a unique visual language, teamed with an experimental and hands-on approach to materials and techniques, which have forged Rosita Bonita a distinct and alluring identity, charming customers, press & stockists ever since. Inspiration comes from glamorous fantasies of past times & faraway lands, & encompasses icons of folklore, myth & legend. With these influences, and a pervading sense of dreamy fun, Rosita Bonita creates tactile printed leather statement jewellery, which is at once nostalgic & novel. Each piece of Rosita Bonita printed leather jewellery is lovingly handcrafted in our studio, in the seaside town of Margate, England. Original illustrations are screen-printed or foil-embossed onto fine leathers & carefully assembled into unique & collectable treasures.
