Cameron and Breen

About Cameron and Breen

Martin Cameron and Laura Breen studied jewellery and silversmithing together at The University of Ulster, Belfast. After graduating Martin undertook further education and training courses at The Goldsmiths’ Centre. Laura travelled through Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Japan, and Southeast Asia igniting a fresh creativity. In 2018, Cameron and Breen became a contemporary goldsmithing collaboration between two friends, combining ideas and skills. They have won awards from The Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths and in 2021 presented their ‘Ancient Treasure’ brooch to HRH Princess Anne. Cameron and Breen have exhibited with notable galleries and completed The Goldsmiths’ Centre’s programmes Shine 2022 and Getting Started 2023.

Maker Enquiry Form

Captivating hordes of ancient jewellery influence the forms and materials in Cameron and Breen’s curious jewellery collections. Gold is cast from wax that has been carved by hand. Rhythmical pattern and curious figures are found under gemstones adorning each piece. Rock crystals are used as a ‘portal’ into the jewellery enhancing its wonder and curiosity. Earthy emeralds and fiery garnets influenced by the colour palette of local moorlands and flora are held in heavy beaten gold. A combination of Laura’s wax carving and Martin’s stone-setting skills leads each piece of jewellery to pass through each of their hands several times before it is finished, creating an intriguing collection of beguiling jewels.
