The jewelry of Rose Morant, a Franco Swiss artist based in Hong Kong, is compared to “wearable monumental sculptures”. As a creative supplier to the very best European luxury brands, Rose Morant’s designs are simple yet modern, suggestive of massive modern architectural designs. Her longtime research and expertise in Asian crafts and skills guarantee that her work is far more than fashion items that are beautiful. These are the bearers of essential history and culture, edgy and thus fascinating.
For instance, behind her bracelets, lies the ancient technique of lacquer from Myanmar, and the traditional ivory and tortoiseshell processing techniques from Vietnam. All these processes make the bracelets graceful and exquisite, as though worn by noblewomen from an ancient dynasty.
Needless to say, all her designs are totally hand crafted. In the case of the lacquer products, to get the perfect finishing and profound colors, more than ten layers of lacquer is needed and each color application is punctuated with drying and sanding stages. Her designs are a unique combination of European sensibility combined with traditional Asian culture and set their wearer apart.
