Rosita Bonita is the glamorous alter-ego of designer Rowenna Harrison. Part of a special 5th anniversary edition of the debut Rosita Bonita collection, Orchard. The necklace began as original illustration which was individually screen printed onto fine coloured leathers, carefully hand cut & assembled into collaged pieces of wearable art, backed with firm black saddlery leather and hung from gold plated brass belcher chain.
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.
