Where it all began...
As a new mother, navigating the turbulent waters of sleep deprivation, nappies, and the highs and very lows, I often felt lost in my new role as a parent.
In those chaotic moments, I knew I deserved a medal - because all mothers deserve a medal!
ROHO was born by the need to be recognised as a new mother, and from the necessity to create something tangible to capture that fleeting essence that is the newborn stage - and to make it timeless enough that I would be proud to wear all the time.
I wanted my medal!
Thus, amidst the whirlwind of life, ROHO emerged. It was truly a family endeavour: my husband proposing the Swahili name meaning soul/spirit, and my daughter serving as the muse. And most importantly, the creative process acted as a catharsis, giving me a sense of purpose, initiating a lasting legacy, and bestowing upon me the metaphorical medal I knew I deserved.
The outcome of this journey was a collection of impression jewellery. The essence of the casting technique lay in the fact that each piece was crafted by hand with utmost care, symbolising a unique connection between two loved ones. No two fingerprints bear resemblance, and the wax moulds are shaped by the individuals making the impressions. Making each piece tactile, three-dimensional, and a testament to the power of love.
Motherhood is an all-encompassing journey and so is a ROHO Heritage, incorporating you the owner in an immersive experience of creation.
