Miss Nordby Thomsen says:
‘When working with jewellery I use a range of materials; leather, wood, plastic, lace, gems, gold, silver and diamonds. The properties of each material play an important part in the design process.
All my pieces are designed and handmade here in Denmark, as it is very important to me, that there is a little though of spirit and fantasy in each one.
I seek my inspiration in in fairy tales, picture books, the arts, cinema and illustrations. The biggest source, however, is my ever present muse Snow and my world Nord.
My World – Nord
Nord is a fairy tale world I have created. A place draped in everything glorious. A place where elves play alongside unicorns and Moon rabbits go on vacation. It is the one place where nothing is impossible.
It is where I go when creativity and imagination is running low and I am in need of an enchanting refill.
When Nord meets reality something amazing happens. My jewellery comes to life and I create pieces that bring a little fantasy and wonder to everyday city life.
My Muse – Snow
Snow – She arrived on day of immense beauty. Large flakes of snow where dancing in mid- air as if they were celebrating the genesis of this wonderful being. A snow fairy . My muse. So delicate and magnificent that everything she lays her eyes upon, turns radiant and glorious like the jewellery she so generously inspires.
Yet, she might be a fairy. But nothing makes her feel better than living amongst us people. She lives close to the castle Rosenborg and the Crown Jewels because she loves the way they sparkle.
Snow and her essence is brought to life by the people who love her. She is in my heart and lives in my pieces; worn on the hands and around the necks of those seeking her inspiration as they pass through our busy world. She is the little twinkle of excitement that we feel when we discover a thing of beauty.
She is a curious little being, full of light-hearted and wondrous ideas. When Mondays are weighing me down, she is by my side guiding me back to the glorious world of Nord, where I can always find the magic that inspires me, my life, and the pieces I create.
