Jen Bradford | narcise.net
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 jewelry is entirely hand-crafted by me using pre-refiner reclaimed/re-cycled metals, wood scrap from guitar manufacture, sustainably hand-harvested botanicals 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.
