Designer Interview: Rosita Bonita

Rosita Bonita jewelry is fun, flirty, and bang on trend. Each leather piece features one of designer Ro’s gorgeous original illustrations, inspired in part by vintage imagery. “[Drawing] is the foundation of all design work anyway, I’m just taking it a bit more literally by wearing the drawings.” Rosita Bonita’s rose earrings and hummingbird necklaces fit right into fashion’s current floral frenzy, but these detailed pieces are also meant to be treasured. Pieces from her Amulet and Orchard collections make perfect presents, whether you want to pick up a gift for a friend or simply treat yourself! We had the chance to visit Ro in her London studio, where she showed us what inspires her, how she creates her unique jewelry, and what she’s working on next.
