I’ve been working for a while now on a new collection of talismans in the Tribal Gilt series. Inspired by my travels, by festivals I’ve attended and by the beauty of the natural world. These pieces include bits I’ve picked up along the way, gold, silver and copper; jasper, agate and quartz; electroformed botanical elements; hand-carved beads from the jungles of Central America. These pieces carry the spirit of the road with them and I hope they inspire your adventures!
Narcise’s love of all things wood is no secret. Nor, frankly, is the enormous stash of exotic wood scraps discarded by a local guitar maker piled like dragon’s hoard around her studio. And anyone who’s seen the lady herself out and about in the last, say, 20 years is well acquainted with her love of rings. How is it, then, that narcise has just now gotten around to carving up a whole bunch of rings out of all this beautiful wood?
Now that the rush of the holidays is over, I’m going to be stocking the online shop again! Today there are three gorgeous new shibuichi cuffs just for you!
An enormous thanks to all of you who came out to the many (many!) trunk shows and events leading up to Christmas! It’s such a fantastic feeling to get to interact with my customers and know that they think enough of my work to give it to the folks they love as a gift.
Truly, thank you.
I have become more than a little captivated by the serene simplicity of the stacked bangle. I love the little jingle they make on my arm and I love hammering that perfect hardened circle just so. Check out the events page and get your hands on some of these beauties at any of my THREE trunk shows this weekend here in St. Louis!
That’s right! Narcise is expanding to Kansas City just in time for the holiday season! I’m thrilled to announce the latest addition to my stockist list – Ugly Glass Company at Le Fou Flea in the West Bottoms! Such an awesome, funky shop in the coolest part of Kansas City for vintage, hand-made and one-of-a-kind goods! Definitely check them out next time you’re in the area.
Speaking of being in the area, Narcise is tickled pink to be participating in this year’s Strawberry Swing holiday market during the First Friday weekend in the West Bottoms! It’s a great weekend to visit Kansas City and check out all of the terrific creative energy happening over there!
Now the the first run of scarves are done, it’s time to start pulling together the “Narcise look” for FW2014. I had such a terrific time with my friend Jody earlier this week. I just took a big bag of jewelry and scarves and we went adventuring. She chose the pieces and how to pair and wear them and I just kept my camera handy. Love love love this lady’s look!
