About My Art

        I am interested in work that draws people in and emotionally connects with them when they hold one of my handcrafted pieces. Whether it's a mug or an essential oil diffuser necklace, each one has that touchstone experience. As a retired health care administrator, I believe in the importance of the health and wellness of mind, body and spirit. I was raised in Southern California and spent much of my life at or near the ocean and many themes of my work are inspired by these formidable years. My designs often reflect my intense love for the ocean, my undeniable family and personal connection with the military and this theme permeates the many color palettes and nautical designs.

        Inner peace comes from our strong minds and this is one of many reasons that I design Essential Oil Diffuser Jewelry. The owner of my jewelry not only wears it, but experiences it. This experience allows the owner to personalize with a drop of Essential Oil to set the mood for their day. The warmth of the body helps diffuse these oils and has the potential to calm, uplift and empower depending on the oil.

From my hands to yours,

Rose Conway
