After almost a decade of living and working in New York City as a Fashion Designer; both Sheryl her and her husband decided to escape the busy concrete jungle to start a family in Seattle, Washington; her husbands birthplace. Their collective experiences of city living, highlighted the importance of simplifying and slow living; which inspires their new aesthetics and minimalistic principles.
From all her trend research and world travels; Sheryl quickly fell in love with the nordic city of Denmark, Copenhagen. She was inspired by the sense of peace, social structure and lifestyle and the Danes’ impeccable design sensibilities. This, combined with the appreciation for modern architecture, natural materials and a neutral palette, all feed into the design process along with the play of simplicity, geometry and an element of contrast.
Their first home; a mid century paradise, allowed for more physical and mental space, the set up of a creative work studio and the exploration of new hand tools and materials. A theme of concrete, walnut and brass emerged; starting out as home décor accents soon evolving into handmade jewelry, the birth of n o r d y made. The pieces are effortless, timeless and versatile with just enough light catching details; the perfect accessories for day – to – night.
