Hi, I'm Roz & I set up Rosalyn's Emporium in 2016 with the aim of sharing my love of craft skills, particularly making precious jewellery.
I attended an evening course in 1995, learning how to make a silver ring & was completely hooked.
In 1997 I started a degree in Designed Metalwork & Jewellery. I graduated with a BA First-Class Honours 3 years later.
In 2001 I made my first pair of wedding rings for my sister & brother-in-law.
The experience & privilege of making such special jewellery in precious metals was inspirational.
This opened the doors for more requests & years later I have made many different wedding rings for family, friends & clients.
My favourite wedding ring commissions were always the ones when the couple saw their own wedding rings being made. Seeing their faces change from doubt to amazement as the metal was hammered, soldered, filed, buffed & polished into a finished wedding ring was wonderful & never becomes boring for me.
Following a 13 year role as a head office based Visual Merchandiser for a large high street jewellery & watch retailer I was made redundant. This gave me the opportunity to set up my own business & share my love for uniquely crafted items with other people.
I am a member of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery & have won a number of design awards from other jewellery bodies.
As well as my degree I am JET 1 qualified (Jewellery Education & Training).
I've completed a basic stone setting & wax carving courses in order to update my skill set.
Since starting my business I have developed & added to the services provided to cover most jewellery needs from Make Your Own workshops, recycling gold & gems, full design & make, engraving, stone setting, plating, repairs & scrap services.
My 3 key services are:
