"Things like the Tara Brooch or the Book of Kells. These were world-class accomplishments of the arts. The Celtic art became an instrument of national pride and national self-esteem," said Stephen Walker, Owner of Walker Metalsmiths.
The jewelry holds rich meaning for the Irish culture.
"It's about what has happened since the Celtic revival starting around 1840 and bringing it up to the beginning of current Celtic renaissance which started around 1980," said Walker.
And one special piece of jewelry has made it's way to Fairport. The Tara Brooch which has gained international fame and recognition.
"It's one of the most technically complex and accomplished pieces of Irish metal work that survives today. Also in part, due to Waterhouse's promotion of the original, along with the copies, it became a national icon," said Dr. Tara Kelly.
The exhibit is a unique one bringing together Irish and Scottish heritage.
"There's really unique pieces from private collections that you might not otherwise get to see, so it's absolutely worth coming down and having a look," said Kelly.
The Celtic Jewelry Exhibit will stay open until the first weekend in June. Admission is free.
