About Carol Silrum


Carol Silrum Studio, North County, CaliforniaCarol Silrum grew up along San Diego’s north county coast. Drawn to the fine arts from an early age, she studied at Palomar College and the University of California, San Diego (at UCSD’s Craft Center), as well as at the National University of Mexico City. Her classes included drawing, oil and watercolor painting, ceramics and metalwork.

Inspired by a lifelong fascination with the interplay of color and light, she now focuses her creative endeavors on designing and handcrafting dichroic glass jewelry. Fused dichroic glass combines the ancient Egyptian art of glass fusing with the space-age technology of dichroic – a complex process of coating glass with quartz crystal and metallic oCarol Silrum Studioxides. To produce her distinctive designs, Carol hand-cuts and layers dichroic-coated and other art glass, which are fused in a kiln and then bezel-set in sterling silver using traditional silversmithing methods.

Carol lives with her husband, a landscape designer, and their two dogs in North County. From their hillside retreat, which looks out on a panoramic vista of rolling green hills and the distant blue Pacific, she works in her home studio to create her one-of-a-kind works of wearable art.
