Nord By Thomsen – About the Designer
The designer behind the brand is Goldsmith Mette Nordby Thomsen. Mette is not afraid to experiment with materials when she creates her small works of art. Over the years, she has explored a wide variety of materials ranging from leather, wood, plastic, and lace to gemstones, gold, silver, and diamonds. The properties of each material play an important role in the design process.
Mette finds her inspiration in fairy tales, picture books, art, biographies and illustrations. Her biggest source of inspiration is, however, her muse the fairy Snow and Mette’s own fairy-tale world North, where elves play with unicorns and moon rabbits go on vacation. It is the only place where nothing is impossible. Mette uses the adventurous frame as a working method and inspiration to create her distinctive jewellery.
Snow is a big part of Mette’s fairy-tale world. Snow lives at Rosenborg Castle in Kongens Have close to the crown jewels, because she loves their opulence. Snow is the little spark of excitement that we feel when we discover something we find truly beautiful. She is a curious little creature, full of bright and wonderful ideas. On grey Mondays, Snow guides Mette to her inspirational universe North, where she can always find the magic that inspires her as per person, her life and the jewellery she creates. Mette has even created a necklace with a beautiful little fairy pendant – dedicated to her muse. When Nord meets reality, something magical happens. Jewellery comes to life, and brings a little imagination and magic to our busy everyday city life.
Mette Nord by Thomsen is the Jeweller and creative head behind the brand. Able to channel classical style as well as playful, bold designs, her feeling for fine carved detail shines through every single piece.
