We are thrilled to have Amelia of Nefer and her beautiful macrame handwork available at the Market! This body of work ultimately is a marriage of an interest in the art of Macrame, or decorative knotting, and the elements of the earth, fusing them into a form of adornment fit for royalty.
Since traveling abroad and spending two years in Brooklyn, she now finds herself now in the little mountain escape of Asheville, NC. In this place of spiritual renewal, encounters with plant spirit medicine, the folklore of the Southern Appalachians, and traditional handcrafts kindle a new yet intuitive approach to her designs. Thus Nefer is born, drawing inspiration from various african adornments, macrame knotting techniques, and the fiber arts of indigenous american peoples.
