Naomi has frequently used embossing in her work. Earlier designs involved piercing patterns into stainless steel, which was then rolled with silver. Recent work began with picking up feathers in the park with her young son - she found that despite their delicate appearance they could be transformed into a solid form by embossing into silver, which she then complemented with touches of 18 carat gold.
