Jewelry has always been a big part of my life. I remember walking around as a little kid with my hands full of rings, and my neck full of necklaces.
The name C. Rosa originates from my 96 year old Portuguese grandmother Carolina Rosa. Ever since I was a little girl i remember her walking around with the most beautiful gold rings. 5 rings on each hand, as extra as that. I always used to borrow them even though they were way too big, that didn't stop me. She also had a pair of beautiful gold hoops with a heart pendant at the bottom. Those were my absolute favorite earrings, as they were so elegant. Her jewelry is where i get my love of jewelry from.
I try to incorporate what I loved about my grandmothers jewelry into the jewelry I design, and hope to make it special for the person wearing it.
