‘Ancient Treasure’ Brooch by Cameron & Breen presented to Princess Anne

14 July 2021


We were delighted to hear that Cameron & Breen’s beautiful ‘Ancient Treasure’ Brooch, which was also part of the PINNED exhibition last year (curated by the Association of Contemporary Jewellers NI in Craft NI Gallery) was presented to Princess Anne during her visit to Antrim Castle Gardens beginning of July.




The brooch, inspired by Antrim Castle Tower, was designed and handcrafted using traditional goldsmithing techniques such as hand carving, hand engraving and stone setting. With patterns inspired by early Celtic stone carving, three dimensional layers of gold and silver, a rich centre garnet and clever touches like the removable pin (a feature inspired by the Tara Brooch), it was definitely a fitting gift for the occasion – a contemporary piece that celebrates traditional craftsmanship and history.
