Jewelry Designer Cosima Rohden

Meet the designer

I have designed and created objects since I was young. While I started my career as an industrial  product designer, I eventually discovered my passion for jewellery.  This passion lead me to Florence in Italy where I fine-tuned my skills at Alchimia Jewellery School. 

​Since my return to Belgium, I have designed and developed various jewelry collections and I also created my own 'GlassWear' jewelry brand.


I love designing, illustrating and creating jewellery for people from around the world. Feel free to contact me for a freelance collaboration.

"It's a beautiful thing when career & passion come together."
