Caroline Brogden - Barnsley, Yorkshire
I am a jewellery designer. I create elegant, contemporary handmade jewellery in sterling silver and gold.
I take my inspiration from the coast and the surrounding environment, but enjoy adding a splash of whimsy, using traditional silversmithing techniques to create texture and form.
Little by little as my simple but beautifully crafted designs became increasingly sought after, I have been able to build myself a small but cosy studio space in her home.
Whilst the Natural Forms collection looks at forms and shapes created through forging the metal. As the metal is forged it follows similar rules found in nature, such as the Golden Spiral.
I am a self-taught designer-maker and have been showcasing my work at many exhibitions and galleries since 2013. In 2016 I was selected as an emerging artist by the Design Factory.
Thanks for continuing to buy British handmade ethical gifts & unique art from Cherrydidi. Finding that perfect gift for a Mum, Dad, brother, sister, your kids, girlfriend, boyfriend, special woman or man in your life, a special friend or even the home, can be a real challenge so we’re glad to have helped. We are a little like Not on the High Street and Etsy but the main difference is we have a real shop you can walk into as well as finding beautiful things online too!
Whether you visited our shop/gallery in Keswick, The Lake District (and met the famous Zak the Collie Dog) or have found us online, buying a gift or piece of art from us will in turn support these talented independent artists and creative businesses - we couldn't do it without you, so thank you for supporting us!
