"Designing and hand-fabricating jewelry allows me to share my passion for beauty with others. My designs often originate from geometric shapes, though the resulting style is often more lacy and feminine than ultra-modern.
I am as at-home designing with pencils, paintbrushes and watercolors as I am at the bench with my soldering torch, saws and other tools. My award-winning designs have featured colored diamonds, high-karat gold and pearls. In my own shop, however, I strive to offer affordable jewelry because I believe that good design transcends materials and should be accessible to everyone.
When I'm not at the drafting table or at the bench, you'll find me with my viola tucked under my chin performing as a member of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra. Long training as a classical musician has taught me dedication and focus, as well as an appreciation for arts and culture."

The History of 2Roses
2Roses is a collaboration of Corliss Rose and John Rose. Many people have wondered about the name. It made no sense to call the pair 3Roses, and after 42 years, the name 2Roses has stuck. But you can call them Corliss and John.
Both Corliss & John have been working artists since childhood, and are the products of an old world traditional arts education. This is simply because they are old and the world was older then. They are now living in the new world and really like electricity and stuff.
Over the centuries the two have established a style that defies definition, except that it is eclectic, unpredictable, irreverent and often humorous. 2Roses work often combines wildly unorthodox materials and themes to create jewelry that is, er… different. Some even deem their work “interesting” in a quizzical way.
2Roses jewelry isn’t for everybody. It doesn’t even try to be. But don’t be surprised if one of their pieces “speaks” to you. You’ll know it when you see it.
Love them or hate them, one thing is certain. Walk into a room wearing a 2Roses piece and you WILL be noticed.
