We are two sisters, 10 years apart, whose like to bring our varied skills and interest together to create wearable works of art.
It started while Jessica was living in Melbourne, Australia taking a part-time mouldmaking and casting course and collecting parrot feathers to use in castings like a crazy person. Upon returning to Canada, she taught Gwynne everything she knew. With Gwynne's engineering background and eye for design Rosella Resin was born. The company is named after the beautiful Australian parrot.
We believe nature is the world's greatest designer. Rosella jewelry showcases the most beautiful designs found in nature, including feathers, shells, and plants.
What is eco resin?
Rosella jewellery 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.
The process: First we create every mould with high grade silicone rubber. Inside the moulds we place collected natural objects or metal flakes and colours. We then cast our jewelry using bio-derived eco resin. Eco resin has a longer cure time than traditional resins takes over one week to cure. After the jewelry has cured, we remove the pieces from the molds, and carefully sand and polish using over 15 grades of sandpaper and polishing tools.
Rosella jewelry is elegantly packaged and comes wrapped in a gift box so it’s ready to gift! We ship all our packages with Canada Post. If you would prefer a faster method of shipping, please contact us before purchasing to arrange.
