Where do you live? I currently live in Astoria, New York
What inspires you as a designer-artist? I'm inspired by Victoria era styles, Steampunk designs, and Middle Eastern art.
What medium do you work with mostly? I mostly like working with different types of metals, but also use wood, beads, and found objects.
Why did you become enchanted with this style of jewelry-making? I like that there are so many different ways to play around with metal ... from stamping, to torching, to drilling ... there is always a new technique to explore.
Where and How do you sell your jewelry? I sell my work via Narjis Designs on Etsy.
What is the name of the piece you submitted with your success story? Leaf Series #5
What inspired this design? It was inspired by Arabesque style leaves found in carvings and calligraphy.
How did it come together? It's part of a series I made all based around different styles of leaves. Each piece started out as a sketch but the finishing touches were made afterwards once the pieces came together.
