Rozie Keogh

My jewellery draws inspiration from historical costume and ceremonial church artefacts. Many of my elaborate pieces contain a narrative, sometimes taken from fairy stories, sometimes from popular culture. They can be both amusing and poignant. The jewellery is designed to be flattering and glamorous.

Most of the work is made in silver and knitted fine silver wire with precious and semi-precious gemstone beads, Swarovski crystals and pearls. However, no material is ever ruled out if it is thought to be suitable for the piece. So it is possible to find anything from a piece of butterfly wing to doll’s house cutlery in some of the items.

Rozie originally trained as an illustrator at Harrow School of Art (now the University of Westminster). In 1990 she returned to college at Hereford College of Art and Design where she completed the Small Studio Practice course (now Applied Arts).

Rozie produces wire sculptures and a constantly evolving  range of jewellery. She has also worked on several site-specific projects.  As well as making work Rozie has works in educational establishments as a visiting artist, leading workshops.
Her work is exhibited nationally through galleries, shops and craft fairs and markets.

Although she now works three-dimensionally, she continues to illustrate life and stories with her work.
