About the maker:
A collaborative made up of Martin Cameron and Laura Breen, both contemporary Irish goldsmiths who work in their studio based in Randalstown Co. Antrim. Martin and Laura celebrate each unique outcome achieved by hand forging, wax carving and engraving, often using tools they have made by hand. Creating a raw aesthetic inspired by early Celtic mark making and stone carvings, traditional goldsmithing techniques are applied to create one-of- a- kind jewellery using precious metals and stones. With an amalgamation of their different skill sets, they design together but use their individual expertise to contribute to the final piece.
