Caroline Brogden is a largely self-taught jeweler working in precious metals. Her work is twofold, with both elements echo of her passion for all things coastal.
Caroline initially starting by casting found objects such as shells and setting unusual pieces of sea glass. This in time has led her to look at the way natural forces shape and influence the growth of the flora and fauna, as well as altering tidal patterns and shaping the headlands.
By using traditional silversmithing skills her second body of work looks at ways to mimic shapes found in nature and develop these into small pieces of wearable art. These pieces are often developed further by use of adornment such as gold accents and semi-precious stones, which highlight and emphasize the multi-dimensional aspects of the work.
