PHILOSOPHY & ETHOS
Freya Rose’s philosophy has always been to create unique, timeless collections that incorporate her expertise in, and passion for fine jewellery.
The provenance and traceability of the materials used in Freya Rose’s designs and the care for the people she works with are fundamental to her business philosophy.
Freya Rose has worked alongside her artisan shoe couturiers in Spain for over 10 years, considering them part of the Freya Rose family and knowing each and every person that turns her designs into a reality.
Freya Rose’s signature mother of pearl heels and jewellery are responsibly sourced in Bali, where she has also worked with the same family for 10 years, now employing 10 jewellers.
Freya Rose believes that preserving and supporting these ancestral craft techniques is essential in a fast, modern world where globalisation degrades these ancient practices and often exploits those involved in the process.
I’m mainly inspired by the tranquillity of our natural world, from the night sky to landscapes.
Paradise comes from the Persian word ‘Pardis’ meaning “a beautiful garden enclosed behind walls”. A walled-garden is truly my paradise.
I find myself most calm and happy surrounded by nature. As a child my father taught me ‘always have time to stop and smell the roses’. He would often take me to a local rose garden where there were over 100 different varieties of roses, a spectrum of colour in bloom. Their perfumed scent in the air, particularly in that golden hour of light in the afternoon, was magical and almost hypnotic.
I am specifically drawn to flowers with mesmerising beauty. Blousy English roses, ethereal peonies and whimsical Japanese blossoms are some of my favourites. Their beauty and form have inspired many of my designs.
Architecture and travel are also huge influences for me, from the towering Art deco structures in New York to the floral mosaics in oriental temples and mosques.
