The story: We are two sisters, 10 years apart, who love making wearable works of art. While living in Melbourne, Australia, Jessica took a mouldmaking and casting course and around the same time developed a serious feather-collecting habit. Upon returning to Canada, she taught Gwynne everything she knew. With Gwynne’s superior eye for design Rosella Resin was born. The company is named after the beautiful Australian parrot.
The concept: Nature is the world’s greatest designer. Rosella jewelry showcases the most beautiful designs found in nature, including feathers, shells, and plants.
Rosella Resin is proudly made using Entropy Resin’s eco performance resin, certified by the USDA as a biobased product. Unlike most petroleum-based resins, this eco resin incorporates bio-derived materials such as pine oils derived from waste-streams of other manufacturing products.
The transparent resin transforms delicate and ephemeral natural artifacts into beautifully preserved, wearable, durable jewelry. Resin also has a magnifying property, highlighting every wispy strand of a feather, every grain of wheat or spiral in a shell.
We also love using metallic silver, gold and copper leaf flakes with a wide variety of colours. Within faceted shapes of the rings and bangles, the resin mimics earthen minerals and gemstones such as tiger eye, turquoise, lapis lazuli, graphite, marble.
Each piece is unique. When you wear our jewelry you can be assured you are wearing a one-of-a-kind item that no one else has.
