Rosie has always been drawn to intriguing objects, from the necklace around her Mother’s neck to her Grandparents’ silver ornaments. Through an enriched childhood spent in rural Gloucestershire; building dens, and collecting shells, leaf skeletons, and seed-cases; a love for small, beautiful, intricate elements emerged and a passion for jewellery making begun. Her work today captures this magical inquisitiveness of exploring through taking things apart and discovering the hidden mechanism and structures. Rosie May Hofman went on to study HND Jewellery Design and Silversmithing & BA Design For Industry at Birmingham School of Jewellery and has since been recognised for multiple awards and achievements. Her iconic brand May Hofman, has a signature modular concept. Built with individually designed components, that can be strung, stacked and interconnected in different arrangements.
