Rosalie creates inspirational luxury jewellery with a clean aesthetic. Her striking designs are influenced by the materials she works with as well as geometric pattern and form she finds in nature. Often asymmetric and angular in structure, many pieces are handcrafted from innovative materials made especially for ROSALIE MCMILLAN in London. Her most recent collection, Java Ore, incorporates a unique material derived from recycled coffee grounds collected in London, transformed into a durable material with a remarkable beauty.
Rosalie’s jewellery offers a deeper connection with her wearers. As a trained psychologist, Rosalie believes the way jewellery makes you feel is just as important as the way that it looks, placing great importance on the provenance of her pieces. The materials used have often been transformed and reinvented into playful jewellery that can be stacked together and arranged in many ways according to mood and outfit, and cherished over time as their finish evolves and is personalised. Rosalie hopes this transformation can inspire us to unleash our own potential, to harness our creativity and deeper values in our lives.
Recently shortlisted for an Observer Ethical Award, Rosalie uses sustainable practices and recycled or Fairtrade materials where possible.
