Soma Brooch

This design is based on a hoard of Irish metalwork that dates from around the 9th century Ireland and found in 1950 at Soma Farm in Norway. Originally it had been made in gold gilt bronze with amber set in the centre and had been a horse harness mount. It appears to have been converted into a brooch and worn by the woman with whom it was buried with.
