Tribal Gilt

Lest you think Narcise had abandoned here beloved metals altogether, here’s a sneak peek at one of the final prototypes for the brand new series, coming just in time for fall!

New For Fall

I’m excited to announce that Narcise is adding a line of hand-woven, hand-dyed scarves to the fall offerings. In addition to the great earthy, organic jewelry you know and love, you can now adorn yourself and your loves in these stunningly soft scarves! Check out the events page or the stockists page for info on where to find Narcise this fall!

Sabbatical

I’m enjoying some time away from the heat and hustle of St Loius to stretch my creative wings a bit on the west coast. I’ve been in Portland for a week and anticipate another week or so here before heading to San Francisco. I very purposefully left all my jewelry tools in STL with the intention of working in some other modalities that have interested me for some time now. So far, I’ve been pretty immersed in teaching myself shibori dyeing and yesterday afternoon I wrapped a piece of white rayon up in some steel and set it to oxidizing, with the intent of over dyeing the results in my indigo vat. I’m pretty tickled with how most everything has come out so far! Keep an eye out for some of these alongside my jewelry at Strange Folk Festival!

Surface

Spent the evening experimenting with three surface treatments for the new batch of Alice blanks. Excited to form these in the new press when it arrives later this week!
