Rosita Bonita is the glamorous alter-ego of designer Rowenna Harrison.

What began, in the Spring of 2010, as some experiments in printing her illustrations on leather - delicate drawings of bounteous fruits, blooming blossom & feasting hummingbirds - became the first collection, Orchard, and a brand was born.

A life long love of drawing and making have equiped the designer 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 Rosita Bonita creates striking tactile statement jewellery, which is at once nostalgic & novel.

Each piece of Rosita Bonita 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. Over the years the collection has expanded to include a range of innovative materials & techniques, as well as a plethora of themes to adorn & delight.
