Our story

Rozenthal Jewelry was launched in 2016 by Latvian ceramic designer, creator and owner Madara Rozentale.

 

Inspiration for Rozenthal Jewelry collections come from shapes and colors found in nature. They are simple, pure, lightweight and enjoyable.

Each piece is made in Author's technique. Marble pattern and hand painted precious metal coat makes every piece unique and unrepeatable.

 About Madara Rozentale

I'm the creator and owner of porcelain jewelry brand Rozenthal Jewelry. All started while I was still studying at Latvian Art Academy.

On Christmas 2015 I sold my very first white porcelain earrings. 

That fall I was on Erasmus+ program and traveled to Barcelona where I spent 6 months. I learnt new ceramic design techniques. I had great inspiration, my head was full of ideas, one of them being use of pigmented porcelain, and so I made many sketches.

 

In March 2016 Rozenthal Jewelry brand was born and I made my first collection. I was thrilled to see how welcoming my brand was taken locally and it still is. My ideas keep on evolving and I can't stop coming up with new items all the time. I get inspired by nature - starting from tree branches and flower petals to cloudy sky and rough cliffs. 

 Handmade

Porcelain jewelry is handmade precisely following in footsteps of traditional ceramics craftsmanship. Each jewelry piece is handcrafted with great care and it takes a long time to create them. Firstly raw porcelain clay is formed and cut into individual pieces and right after they undergo first firing process. Afterwards porcelain pieces must be polished and glazed before they undergo second firing. Lastly glossy pieces are hand-painted with gold or platinum luster and then last firing takes place. So after 3 separate firings, from which the highest reaches 1260°C (2300°F), porcelain pieces finally are ready. Dangle earring hooks are made at our studio using 14k gold-filled wire, but 925 Sterling silver studs are pre-made.

 Our studio

 Rozenthal studio offers co-working space for other ceramics artists and we also organise workshops for everyone who is interested in this art form.
