Ola Gorie considers the brooch a particularly fascinating kind of jewellery, and has long specialised in the form.

The intricate interwoven lines of our Celtic and Norse heritage can be interpreted to their full glory in larger pieces like the Alskog and Finnish Beast brooches.

Brooches don’t have to be traditional, though. One of our most popular new designs of recent years is Flow, which mimics the wash of crystal-clear seawater over an Orkney beach. It’s strikingly streamlined and modern, while still being rooted in our beautiful natural environment.
