Leaf Series #5
Meet the Designer-Artist

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.
