Luckily for me I was able to get my hands on pieces from the Talis Collection. At the heart of Rosie May’s identity and where customisation and interaction come into play.
Talis comes from the word talisman: an object which harnesses magical and spiritual properties. Each piece can be strung, stacked and interconnected creating a collection with endless possibilities. Elements interact with one another in different ways, creating a mechanical elegance. The nature of the necklaces allows for endless possibilities creating one off configuration for a desirable unique piece of treasure. Discover an exciting, dynamic concept of component-based jewellery offering you a personal treasure, as well as a life-long investment.
“My New Collection is exploring the same concept as Talis, yet introducing new elements that explore my inspiration from the city. I am taking on two simple shapes that I see on a daily basis, linking the mathematics in nature and a play on design and architecture; Circles and Triangles. These two shapes will work in harmony together, playing their own part in the design, making for a modern and minimal look, different to my original work that was more inspired by the nature I was surrounded by as a child. I intend to achieve a refined and well considered collection with hidden intricacies.”
Necklace; Talis Collection. £350
The Talis Necklace is constructed using a stainless steel bar on which the elements rotate creating a truly mechanical and tactile piece of jewellery. There is the option to get your own unique necklace made up along with add new elements to the necklace at a later stage, please contact us directly if your interested. You can chose the orientation of the necklace, on a vertical or horizontal chain. Both chains are available to purchase.

These are delicate and striking studs, perfect as an everyday favourite. Fits the lobe of the ear perfectly. No butterfly back instead a nice clip like device, keeping it secure and comfortable.
