New Refined Basics is a line of contemporary jewelry designed to be worn often and adored. NRB was established in 2012 by Natalie Barela as an avenue to further the exploration of metal work and small sculpture. Each piece of her jewelry is inherently unique because of its handcrafted process. The majority of pieces are hand forged and assembled by using hammered cold connections. No two pieces are exactly the same. All jewelry is made to order in Portland, Oregon at our NE studio location.
