It was not surprising when Naomi learned that both of her great grandparents were jewelers more than two generations ago. Inspired through the subconscious, Naomi has embarked on a personal and spiritual journey, exploring her relationship with the earth and the stone world, connecting the past to the present.

Handcrafted with rare precious and semi-precious gemstones, crystals and fossils, many would agree that Naomi’s creations are designed to speak to the heart, adorn the body and nourish the soul. Wearable and whimsical, each handmade creation symbolizes and honors the untouched, organic beauty within the natural materials she uses. Standing the test of time, no two pieces are alike. Each piece culminates the age-old tradition of hand-forging metal jewelry, with a modern touch, and a holistic appeal that inspires and connects.

Naomi’s silver and carving training began in Baffin Island, the Canadian Arctic where she trained with renowned Inuit artist Matthew Nuqingaq exploring the use of Sculpture and metal. She then journeyed to Mexico, apprenticing one of San Cristobal’s top silversmiths. Her Love of Nature and earth stewardship, paired with the philosophy of “Mindful Adornment” have paved the way for over a decade of award winning designs and craftsmanship.
Naomi Currently lives in Meaford where she creates her work in her newly established Woodland Studio nestled amongst the trees and rocks of the Niagara Escarpment.
