It’s the myriad and depth of colour that inspire me. From a practical and wearability perspective, they are hard and enduring, making them the perfect stone for heirloom jewellery.
The jewellery we design and handcraft at Rohan Jewellers is wearable and comfortable while still pushing the creative boundaries. We are inspired by varying eras and styles, however a modern Art Deco theme is often what runs through our designs.
I started collecting rocks at a very early age where I grew up, in the hills above Perth. I would forage for hours in the creek beds for anything that was remotely interesting.
