Silver and Enamel Box – Tidal Series

by Caroline Finlay



The small oval box itself is crafted from oxidised and brushed silver.

On top, the lid has been matt finished in vitreous enamel to look as if the glass has been tumbled and frosted in the sea. Marks picked out on its delicately textured surface evoke those made by the tide on the Scottish shoreline.

Enjoy simply gazing at this beautiful little silver box or use it to store tiny treasures such as earrings, cufflinks, baby teeth, stolen diamonds… the choice is yours.

Caroline’s tactile and eye-catching creations are infused with the colours and shapes of the coast.  Living creatures and fishing boats were the inspiration sources for this design in particular.

A more recent addition to Caroline’s range of unique silver and enamel jewellery, her boxes look wonderful alongside other pieces in the collection.

Caroline Finlay


Fife-based Caroline is a graduate of Grey's School of Art in Aberdeen in the north of Scotland and has exhibited throughout the UK and in the Netherlands. She taught for many years until hanging up her lecturer's hat in 2013 to concentrate solely on her jewellery work.

She works mainly in silver with enamel, using traditional silversmithing and jewellery craft skills. A few years ago she began experimenting with vitreous enamel, enjoying its spontaneity in comparison with the confines of working with traditional enamelling techniques.

As well as creating her new range of enamel pieces, Caroline likes exploring methods of mark making on metal and different surface finishes

'I love the whole process: gathering inspiration through photos and sketches, developing at the bench, evolving at each stage. The techniques I use mean every piece is individual and I'm happy to let a piece develop in the making process, letting the natural characteristics of different techniques interact to create a more unusual form or texture.'

A nature aficionado, Caroline takes inspiration from her surroundings, particularly the textures, colours and patterns of the sea and coastline, and is intrigued by the symbiotic relationship of plants, creatures, the tide, seasons and life cycles. All of which feed into the creation of her contemporary and tactile jewellery, boxes and vessels.
