Announcement    ◒ “n o r t h y, pronounced " n o r d y ”, is a Southern Irish term for someone from Northern Ireland; the place where I grew up. ♡

n o r d i c
Danish modern and mid-century aesthetics underpin my clean, simple, geometric pieces, initially inspired by travels to Copenhagen, Denmark as a former NYC Fashion Designer. Inspired also by light and space, with its complementary palette of neutrals, my
n o r d y made jewelry is light in appearance, natural and easy on the eye; often with elements of contrast and a high shine. Neutral in color and simple in shape, these pieces can be worn with any color or style. My main inspiration comes from fine art, furniture design, architecture, general Scandinavian aesthetics and of course from my 10 years of fashion design experience.

n o r t h w e s t
Effortless, timeless and easy to wear; n o r d y made jewelry is versatile and perfect for everyday wear, reflecting my simplistic, meaningful and slow living lifestyle in the Pacific Northwest. My jewelry is designed and m a d e in West Seattle; that inspiring and picturesque evergreen gem thats surrounded by views of the mountains and water. 🌲

n o r d i c inspired minimalist jewelry . handmade in the pacific n o r t h west . by n o r t h e r n irish native

'n o r d y' is a southern irish term for someone from northern ireland

After almost a decade of living and working in New York City as a Fashion Designer; both Sheryl and her husband decided to escape the busy c o n c r e t e jungle to start a family in the emerald city of Seattle, Washington; her husband's birthplace. Their collective experiences of city living, highlighted the importance of simplifying and slow living; which inspires their new aesthetics and
m i n i m a l i s t i c principles.

From all her trend research and world travels; Sheryl quickly fell in love with the n o r d i c 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 c o n c r e t e, w a l n u t and b r a s s emerged; starting out as home décor accents soon evolving into handmade jewelry, the birth of n o r d y. The pieces are effortless, timeless and versatile with just enough light catching details; the perfect accessories for day – to – night.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

c o n c r e t e - Our concrete is specially formulated, non-toxic and safe for wear unlike traditional construction concrete. By nature, this porous material and will become a little darker with a slight shine over time. Avoid excessive handling and contact with oil based products such as make-up. A damp paper towel with dot of mild soap can be used to spot clean. Be kind to your piece and avoid striking against hard surfaces.

Care instructions

w a l n u t - We finish our walnut with food grade Danish Oil. However, olive oil can be used to maintain its richness of color and to highlight the wood grain. Add a thin coat over the surface, allowing to soak in for a few seconds and wipe off excess with a paper towel. Be sure all excess is removed before allowing to come into contact with clothing.

Care instructions

b r a s s (sealed) - Some brass pendants are finished with a protective jewelry seal and while no care is needed, it's generally advised to avoid wet and humid conditions with jewelry. See individual styles for material details.

b r a s s (raw) - Some raw brass pendants are polished with a jewelry wax to protect against oxidation; a natural process with brass. This process can be slowed by avoiding wet and humid conditions, however, the brass can be maintained and polished up to its original shine by using a buffing pad or polishing cloth (included), while taking care to avoid concrete or walnut areas if applicable. See individual styles for material details.

Care instructions

g o l d p l a t i n g - Our chain and some charms are made from 24k gold plated brass while no care is needed, it's generally advised to avoid wet and humid conditions with jewelry.
