Groom wanted to challenge her creative voice and fully explore the possibilities of form. Using books on ancient jewellery and art to inform decision making, Rosie made 100 totally different intuitive responses in malleable wax to then be cast in metal. This was the starting point which lead to several of Rosie’s other collections, and this explorative process is something the artist uses continuously.

Groom used a combination of ancient and modern methodology to create jewellery that transports the wearer back to an undocumented time and place, somewhere between past and present. Using the ancient method of lost wax casting in bronze, then powder coating the finished pieces in a magnetised paint usually used on an industrial scale.
