Caroline Temple studied Jewellery and Silversmithing at Edinburgh
College of Art and has worked for over 12 years creating beautiful
one-off comissions as well as wearable, yet exciting everyday pieces.
Every piece is hand-made in solid silver and gold, gem stones and
genuine hand-fired glass enamel.
There are very few artists using the complex technique of hand-fired
vitreous enamelling in which the coloured glass powders are applied to
silver. The metal has to withstand up to 900 degrees centigrade so high
quality Britannia Silver must be used. The result is uniquely beautiful
- a translucent and gem-like colour shimmers on the surface of the
silver. The colour never fades or changes and it has a permanence and a
preciousness which make gem stones a natural partner - adding another
dimension of colour and celebrating the beauty of nature.
"I love to think that I'm creating the heirlooms of the future - which
is why I make sure that every piece is made using traditional
silversmithing skills to ensure it will last for generations."
