Rosita Bonita

Margate, kent

Hello, I'm Rowenna; designer, maker & everything else at Rosita Bonita.

please note, I will be closed from 13th Dec to 6th January. Any orders placed during this time will be made in january.

I create show-stopping, lovingly handcrafted adornments to turn heads, and make you feel fabulous.

My original illustrations become iconic printed leather accessories, and my hand-carved wax sculptures become dazzling cocktail jewellery in recycled sterling silver & glamorous gold. All carefully crafted in my Margate studio.

Beautiful, collectable treasures to adorn & delight, since 2010.

The story behind the business
Meet Rosita Bonita

I launched Rosita Bonita in the Summer of 2010, after experimenting with screen-printing some illustrations on to leather, and making my first collection of collaged necklaces. Within a year, with my first few stockists, some unexpected press and a growing customer base, I said goodbye to my day-job and have never looked back.

My collections have been inspired by everything from ancient amulets to mythological beasts, Victorian valentines to mid-century tiki furniture. My life-long love of drawing, making, and dressing up, along with a playful hands-on approach to materials and techniques, have forged Rosita Bonita a distinct and alluring identity.

I design with impact & detail in mind, and flavour my work with equal parts Golden age Hollywood glamour & Rock n Roll spirit, creating striking tactile statement jewellery, which is at once nostalgic & novel.
