Caroline's work is inspired by the Scottish coastline; the textures, colours and patterns it evokes, the tide, seasons and life cycles.
She works in silver, gold and vitreous enamel. Enamel allows her to introduce colour into her work and she uses a palette that echoes her inspiration.
"I am happy to let a piece develop in the making process; allowing the natural characteristics of different techniques to interact. I explore jewellery making and enamelling techniques to create mark making, form and colour. Each stage is made by hand; I prefer the fluidity this gives my work; nothing is identical, no pattern is exactly the same. I enjoy the connection this gives me with each piece and the spontaneity that experimenting with enamel allows."
