ROSEY Brooch

The ROSEY BROOCHES are silhouettes of a rose with a barely open bud, soft but spikey, 3D but 2D, almost like a tattoo, blooming but not quite yet, distant and delicate.
My inspiration was clearly the Film Noir of the 40’s and 50’s. The private detective, a tough guy, is cosseted by his honest and lovely secretary who is very sectretly in love with him, but he falls for the Femme Fatale. He seems to need the influence of both of the women, they are of such contradictory nature that their features could never be unified in one. THE ROSEY COLLECTION embodies this romantic battle of good and evil. With the help of modern technologies I translated this old antagonism between thorns and perfume into subtle silhouettes that can be worn as avantgarde jewelry.
Unisex. I see it as one of the few pieces of jewelry that a man in a suit can wear on his lapel.
Made from coated lasercut magnetic spring steel the ROSEY BROOCHES come with three magnets. Hold the brooch in position and place the magnets behind the garment piece by piece. Not to be worn with a heart pacemaker.
