ROSALYN'S EMPORIUM HOME

New Collection...

Based on the original hand-drawn words & illustrations by Brian Grimwood, a renowned illustrator
I am developing my first collection of made-to-order jewellery.

The Rosalyn's Emporium logo was also drawn by Brian so these pieces are truly personal to my business.

I'm starting the collection by launching the 'Love' bracelet which can be personalised by you from a choice of 20 colours.  

More items will be added soon.
