Artist Statement

The Rosie Kent brand handcrafts lavish textures and deliciously shaped jewellery. We strive to create unique timeless pieces that are elegant but most of all comfortable to wear all day long. Each piece is handmade by a very small team in our Peak District studio. We are proud to use recycled and ethically sourced materials, recently we have just become a fairmined gold licensed brand.

It’s all started with my obsession into the finer details. I love how our textured pieces come alive when the light hits. The reflective trickery of metal, making you believe an object is set with hundreds of stones rather than hundreds of tiny grains of silver. I create the pieces using 3D software, some models can be covered in 1000’s of tiny grains, building a model on the computer and 3D printing the master is a much quicker way to achieve my ideas. However, this process means I can get a bit too carried away in the minute details. These textured objects are then turned in to jewellery by hand using traditional jewellery techniques. 

I like jewellery that tells a story, gives you a glimpse into an ancient world. I believe these textures give the jewellery character and meaning. I also love the ambiguous nature of patterns; the wearer of the piece can take their own meaning from it which might be entirely different from my own.
