Caroline then moves on to designing and adding Sterling Silver accent pieces to add contrast and strength to the work. Some of the work is small and almost unnoticeable for example the hidden silver tubing reinforcing the holes in the ‘Lifebuoy’ earrings where the ear wires are threaded through.
Each piece of Surfite has its own story to tell in its history as being part of a custom surfboard and in its future as another precious object. Many people see landscapes and sunsets within the layers of resin which add an extra dimension of meaning in the selection of their chosen item of jewellery. Each piece then becomes something to be treasured and preserved.
It is this celebration of uniqueness by reimagining an imperfect waste material which pushes Caroline to study and develop this collection as she continues to explore shape, form and colour.
