"Starting with natural forms, Navama engages traditional metalsmithing techniques and technologically driven processes to create bold, postmodern jewelry that offers hints of its organic origins." Annette Becker
My jewelry manipulates, reproduce, and highlight natural materials through traditional and technologically driven processes. Through my work I’m investigating textures, consumer culture, value of materials and craft and how material holds a memory.“
I am interested in creating tension through juxtaposition between materials and techniques to represent controversial sources. Fine metalsmithing along with Tool Dip, plastic casting, programing and laser cutting are used to manipulate and reproduce naturals materials, skins patterns and textures.
