Martin Cameron & Laura Breen specialise in luxury jewellery with unique designs which celebrate raw natural beauty.
Cameron & Breen are two Contemporary Irish Goldsmiths based in Northern Ireland with a background in Silversmithing. Martin is a graduate member of Contemporary British Silversmiths- www.contemporarybritishsilversmiths.org and both Martin & Laura have received awards from The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths London for their Silversmithing work. Laura has also made a number of awards for Northern Irish Businesses and distinct individuals such as Sir Alex Ferguson.
A combined interest in sculptural Silversmithing has influenced their joint transition into Couture Jewellery.
Inspired by travelling wild Landscapes of Northern Ireland and rugged terrains of New Zealand their work takes on natural forms. Contrasting fine, delicate leaves and flowers with rough textures to reflect the untamed, yet beautiful landscapes.
Cameron & Breen provide an alternative take on bridal jewellery including unique engagement rings and wedding bands for both men and women. Martin and Laura meet with couples to create rings which are personal to each individual.
"An ethereal sense of atmosphere surrounds work inspired by fine and instinctive drawings of the Irish moorland and wild grasses. Decorative and sculptural the jewellery embodies the same delicacy and spontaneity as the sketches it is based on, it becomes a complete visual experience of the beauty and vulnerability in new life and growth and simplicity in its most elegant form."
