Hi, I'm Rose, designer, explorer and environmentalist. After 29 years travelling the world and a decade designing bespoke jewellery, I now run an ethical jewellery business using opals I've mined, cut and polished myself. Ask Me Anything!
My childhood was spent in Borneo, Indonesia on a research basecamp (see below!), so it was inevitable I became an environmentalist.
Combining this with a love of travelling, I explored the world and ended up (accidentally but fortuitously) on an Australian opal mine where I fell in love with opal.
This started a journey which had been ten years in the making...
I now run Cicely Cliff, which creates ethical luxury jewellery using sustainable materials including opals I helped to mine and then cut and polished myself!
There is a lot of mystery around opals and bespoke jewellery, not ot mention ethics and sustainability in the jewellery business. I'm here to help clear up some of the mystery around the subjects!
I'd love to answer questions about:
Opal and its myths
Ethics and sustainability in the jewellery business
Jewellery (tips, hints etc!)
Bespoke jewellery (process, creation, inspiration, how to start... anything)
