Welcome,

My name is Nora and I have been designing and fabricating jewellery since 2010. I draw inspiration from nature and music. Shape, form and colour are important elements in my creations. My pieces range from traditional to ecclectic and modern. Some are fun and others formal. I use sterling silver, gold-filled, gold, and incorporate gemstones and an array of other materials in some of my limited edition collections. I purchase All sterling silver and gold from a reputable manufacturer who only uses 100% recycled precious metals to make the sheet and wire I use. Every piece I make is meticulously handmade using traditional silver and gold-smithing techniques.

My primary core value is individualization –I want you to feel that what you buy here isn’t just yours, but an expression of you, through the originality of design.
Second to this, I want your purchase to be something that you’ll treasure – a special object with meaning behind it.
Through this ethos I’ll do my out-most to create a piece of jewellery that suits and defines who you are.

All are made with great care and attention to detail. If you're not happy, I'm not happy.

Your questions are important so please don't hesitate to contact me.

I LOVE CUSTOM ORDERS...PLEASE SEE MY FEEDBACK

I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I love making them...

WOW ! Another beautiful ring from Nora, a unique, lovely bold, hammered silver ring, which is so comfortable to wear. Nora is a delight to deal with and was so quick in getting the ring to me in a lovely little box. So happy :)

About

Passionate about life, passionate about jewellery design

~What I do~

I am the operator, designer, maker, advertiser and packager of Norita Designs. I have been creating pieces of wearable art for people who appreciate individuality and long lasting beauty. I find inspiration in the world around me and in others. I love movement, colour and texture. My biggest thrill is to be able to translate your ideas and designs into something you will treasure for years to come.

Sometimes I sketch my designs and other times I go straight to the workbench and begin to transform a cold, hard, piece of metal into a wearable art piece. Some of my works can be simple and dainty, others complex and detailed. Whatever they are, I always strive for attention to detail and accuracy.

~Why metal?~

Metal, to me, is what paint, fabric or clay is to other artists. I love manipulating it and enjoy the process as much as the end results. To me, the transformation of a sheet of metal or a piece of wire by traditional silversmithing methods such as hammering, soldering, dapping, drilling, shaping, polishing, riveting, granulating, to name a few, is very satisfying.


Thank you for being part of my journey
