Jewelry Designer Cosima Rohden

Meet the designer

As a designer, I bring my passion for creativity to every aspect of my work. My journey started as an industrial product designer where I worked across various disciplines. Eventually I discovered my passion for jewellery.  This passion led me to Florence, Italy, where I refined my skills by learning from the most talented goldsmiths. 

 

Since my return to Belgium, I have continued to improve my skills and to broaden my horizons in the world of jewellery. I have designed several jewellery collections, worked as a goldsmith and developed my own brand.
