Rosita Bonita is a jewelry brand founded by designer Rowenna Harrison in 2010. The handcrafted pieces are made from leather and embossed with designs of owls, fans, lanterns and birds in elegant, shiny gold.

The hand dyed jewelry pieces in red, blue and black will make a great statement piece for your next outfit.

The shown owl pieces from Damn Fine collection are inspired by Twin Peaks. "Two halves of a broken heart, held together yet kept apart, the owls (are not what they seem), a blue rose (a message from Gordon's mother's sister's girl), & the menacing, enveloping fire."
