I was raised near St. Louis and come from a family of makers. From upholstery and furniture building to sewing (and sowing), I've had the benefit of being surrounded by multiple generations of family who are skilled in their craft and eager to teach the next generation. Narcise is the outlet for my own need to make by combining the materials and techniques of those who came before me in ways they never imagined. My pieces are entirely hand-crafted by me using pre-refiner reclaimed/re-cycled metals, wood scrap from guitar manufacture, sustainably hand-harvested botanicals, foraged horn and quartz that is sustainably mined on a small family-owned and operated mine in central Arkansas. I hope you'll love wearing it as much as I love making it.
In perfect love and perfect trust. Coming Ostara 2017.

Digging in the boneyard for inspiration I found these little "caldera" experiments where I was melting fine and sterling silver in copper domes to try to achieve some surface alloying for a shibuichi effect. didn't turn out quite like I expected, but when I found them today they seemed perfect for these little peridot and some ear wires! Shop updates coming...soon(ish)...

Finished! Happy with how this one turned out! Sterling silver and boxelder maple with a 5mm moonstone cabochon.

Almost done! Decided this one needed a little moonstone friend and had to get in on some of this bezel-on-bezel action (big shout to @poreliza and @taylorsaleem for inspiration!)

Spent the morning making some luscious box elder cabochons and dreaming about how they'll look with these divine pink tourmaline. Stay tuned!
