This is my new butterfly design for luke goldsmith jewellers as part of his bohemia collection, the front has areas carved out for enamel to be placed in when it is cast and the back has intricate carvings for that extra level of detail. When cast the body will be made of coloured gemstones.
Craft and Design magazine have given me a gold award in the jewellery category of their selected maker awards.
Thankyou to everyone who voted for me putting me into the running so that i could go for gold!
The judge Kath Libbert wrote a wonderful accolade about my work which i am very grateful for.
“What a treat to be introduced to Naomi Nevill’s wonderfully vibrant world of lustrous enamel jewellery all executed with supreme skill.
I love her confident use of colour, the range of ways she makes use of enamelling, for instance her intricate shimmering cloisonné work, the variety of compositions she creates, from the detailed geometric patterns in her Microscopic Series of brooches, which I particularly like and would personally choose to wear, to the organic flow of her Rock Pool neckpiece which shows off her mastery not only of enamelling but of repoussé techniques too. However, her piece de resistance is the awe inspiring Lizard necklace, the detailing is superb, the colours are perfect and the composition works well as a wearable stand out piece.
Naomi is a new young talent with great flair, talent and confidence and I feel sure she will go from strength to strength!” Kath Libbert
Along with other prizes i will be getting a three page spread in craft and design magazine, more updates on that soon
