Rosie Wesley is a metalwork and jewellery designer working from her studio in Lymington, The New Forest.
Having lived in The New Forest for many years now, Rosie takes the majority of her inspiration from the local area and creates her work from found natural objects. Focussing on texture and form, each of Rosie’s sculptural works and jewellery are individual, site-responsive pieces and are one of a kind.
Rosie uses burn-out casting techniques to transform her found natural objects into metal. Pieces of tree bark, acorns, twigs and leaves make unique components for her work and become immortalised forever. Some of her pieces also feature components based on her drawings or sketches of the forest.
