This gorgeous Cape Town jewellery designer and I met long before either of us even thought jewellery would bring us back in touch. We met on a shoot (we were modelling dressing gowns. Yes. Glam I know) and her infectious laugh and bubbly personality struck me immediately. So you can imagine my delight when she started producing jewellery that I wanted to fill my jewellery box with. Turns out she started making jewellery for herself and posting pics on social media.. and the orders came pouring in!
I bought one of her bracelets as a treat to myself for my birthday this year (see the post here) but I saw on Twitter the other day she has just launched a line of rings. And you all know me and rings! Her jewellery brand is called Romeo Foxtrot Designs, her nickname by one of her friends who used to call her that in order to simplify Rouxmia.
I thought it was quite catchy and then decided to go with it! I googled it and I found out that in the army it used to mean “run like f**k” so it made it even more fun to use! Thanks Alex Hulley!
Rouxmia finds her inspiration on Pinterest as well as when she walks into her suppliers. Her jewellery is made up of nickel free Tibetan silver, pleather and suede. What I like is that she makes it as affordable as possible without skimping on the quality.
Romeo Foxtrot currently has six rings but, like me, Rouxmia loves rings so promises that there will be more to come.
Rouxmia’s favourite piece of jewellery that she makes,
is probably my suede wrap charm bracelets, because it is unique and that came to me in a dream. I make the originals and I absolutely love charms!
Her next line will be a prayer bead line with which she is currently busy as well as a T-Shirt line in the near future. But MY favourite is this little baby right here..
If you love her jewellery as much as I do then have a look on her website for more of her pieces. Rouxmia is on Pinterest here, friend her on Facebook or follow her on Twitter at @Rouxmia. If you want to order, mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
