Selected Limited edition jewellery pieces from Jewellery designer Naomi Mcintosh.
Naomi is a designer/maker with architectural background, having studied Architecture at the Bartlett School of Architecture University College London, before gaining a Masters Degree in Jewellery Design from Central Saint Martins in London. She investigates space that surrounds that body with jewellery. Her work is exhibited internationally and has been showcased in major galleries, including the Saatchi Gallery in London with ‘COLLECT’ and at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York as well as having shown in London Fashion and Design weeks and SOFA Chicago.
In 2014 Naomi made a bespoke collection of Jewellery for the Royal Academy of Arts,
responding to their major exhibition, ‘Sensing Spaces: Architecture reimagined’. The group of limited edition pieces are currently avaiable at the Royal Academy.
‘I use objects to reveal the landscape of the body. The structural and precise pieces
investigate how volumes, patterns, planes and forms that surround the surface of the skin are seen. They look organic because of the choice of materials used and the
combinations of influences, which is an interesting contrast because of the technology and processes. I juxtapose architectural methodologies and drawing conventions with qualities generated from drawings of wood and rock formations and contour maps, as well as the contours of the body. The works are ‘Wearable Drawings’ and a series of techniques to greate volumes, from carving solid volumes to useing planes and cross sections to suggest forms and capture volumes, transforming 2D surfaces into 3D objects. My process involves hand drawings of the body, exploring the surface of the skin, as well as 3D body scans and casting volumes, capturing movement.’
Naomi makes limited edition pieces as well as one off works, commisions and bespoke
