Hi, I'm Naomi

I’M A JEWELLER, SHOP OWNER, TEACHER AND MUM, WHO LOVES NOTHING BETTER THAN CREATING TREASURED MEMENTOS FOR UNIQUE PEOPLE AT MY BEAUTIFUL STUDIO IN NOWRA ON THE SOUTH COAST OF NEW SOUTH WALES.

About Appleye

Naomi is an Artisan, a self taught jeweller, local shop owner, teacher, devoted mother and wife. A lover of the theatre, she can often be found lighting up the stage in some local musical when she is not creating her beautiful jewellery.

She has been a maker her whole life! Naomi discovered her love for metal forming about ten years ago while raising her family on the picturesque South coast of New South Wales, Australia. Her love for texture and organic form is what inspires her unique handmade collection.

“Producing unique pieces, handmade in our studio using eco minded fine metals, and sourcing ethically cut gems & stones is a strong foundation of our making procedures ethos.”

 

 

Jewellery

 

We stay true to our unique designs that are not influenced by trends, but rather by our love for our organic textural surrounds and the inspiration that comes to Naomi.

As she sits at her “smithy” bench, she creates what comes to mind as she considers a locally cut opal or stone, and forms the metals by hand using traditional silversmith skills and using 100% recycled and refined Australian sterling silver and other fine metals.

Our eco ethos drives our design creation process, we feel a sense of environmental and social responsibility to produce with mindfulness and care, producing a small batch, slow made collection with minimal waste.
