Naomi Chicoine

Naomi Chicoine is a jewelery artist from Iowa now residing in California. Her work is inspired by items collected during childhood growing up in the semi-isolation of the midwest wilderness and farmlands. These were things uncovered from overgrown grasses and weeds, dug up from rich, dark soils of cornfields, and  gathered from dump heaps that accumulated in the ditches of gravel roads; nails and soda cans, feathers and matches, bones and lightbulbs, and the like.
