Caroline Cowen - Jeweller

Caroline studied Applied Arts at University, and for most of the course specialised in textiles, however in her final year she realised that it was always jewellery she ended up creating. Caroline began working with metals for her final project and since graduating has been learning new techniques and setting up her workshop in Hertfordshire.

Caroline designs and makes quirky contemporary silver jewellery which is inspired by illustration and a love of the natural world.

She has recently been exploring the use of gold in her work through the ancient Korean technique of Keum Boo where sheets of 24ct gold are fused onto silver and often uses semi precious stones to add colour.
