Moule Earrings

  • Rosita Bonita is the glamorous alter ego of (equally glamorous!) designer Rowenna Harrison. Ro began experimenting with screen-printing her designs onto leather back in 2010, marrying her life-long love of drawing with an experimental approach to materials.

    Each piece of Rosita Bonita printed leather jewellery is lovingly handcrafted in Ro’s Margate studio, a stone’s throw from the Grotto. Original illustrations are screen-printed or foil-embossed onto fine leathers and carefully assembled into unique and collectable treasures. With these influences, and a pervading sense of dreamy fun, Rosita Bonita creates tactile printed leather statement jewellery, which is at once nostalgic and novel.
