Turning used coffee into striking Jewllery

Tucked away near London Fields, in a small hand built garden workshop, Rosalie McMillan is designing and making some surprising and strikingly unique jewellery. Her raw material of choice, coffee. Recycled and repurposed, used coffee grounds are transformed and set with silver or gold into exquisite asymmetrical bold jewellery. A long held passion for designing and making has now become a new career. I recently visited Rosalie in her workshop as she created a new and exciting piece for her current collection. She took me through her process of creation (well less a process and more a journey of discovery) as she masterfully transformed a rough brown block of the raw coffee material and a few pieces of silver.

Here are a few images that I hope do justice to her hard work and creativity.
