Caroline King

Designer Information...

Caroline King was born in Penzance, early in the 1960’s. After leaving school she first took a painting course at the Penlee School of Art; and subsequently became a fabric artist, working in all aspects of the art including weaving, tapestry, quilting and appliqué, at the Barbican. Penzance. Later Caroline trained as a sign-writer and went on to work in Botswana, South Africa. There she undertook the sign-writing for some important public buildings, including Seretse Kharma Airport.

In 1988 Caroline returned to the UK and for the next eight years she worked in catering in London and Cornwall. In 1997 she started her training in gold and silver smithing at the Morrab Road Art Education Centre, Penzance and has since worked continuously as a jeweller.

Recently Caroline moved from Penzance to settle with her husband and daughter in Connemara, Eire.

Teudhi rings

Teudhi is the word for melt in the Cornish language. It aptly describes the appearance of the Tiara rings that Caroline makes with precious metals melting and blending together, giving them an unstudied freshness redolent of more primitive times.  Rings may be ordered to size but will never be quite the same as another as the teudhi process renders each ring unique.

Bog rings

Bog rings are Caroline’s response to the wild and boggy landscape of Connemara.  As with her Tiara rings she uses the teudhi, or melting, process to produce sinuous organic shapes studded with gold and stones.  Rings may be commissioned to size but will never be quite the same as the examples shown here on the website as each ring is a unique piece.
