“n o r d y” is a Southern Irish term for someone from Northern Ireland; the place where Designer and
Maker, Sheryl Bernauer grew up before heading to the US to complete her Masters Degree.
During her 9 years of world travels & trend research as NYC Fashion Designer, the Nordic city of Denmark, Copenhagen, quickly captured her attention and inspired her work from then on, but also her personal design taste and lifestyle sensibilities. Danish modern and mid-century aesthetics underpin her clean, simple, geometric pieces. The complementary palette of neutrals is light and easy on the eye, often with elements of light catching contrast. Effortless, timeless and easy to wear; n o r d y jewelry is versatile and perfect for layering.
Inspired by light and space, this collection reflects Sheryl’s new simplistic, meaningful and slow living lifestyle here in the beautiful PNW, which is in contrast to her NYC experiences. Her main logo is symbolic of the natural views that surround her. Handmade in her West Seattle home-studio, Sheryl balances her jewelry business passionately on the side of being a full time mom and wife to her Seattle born, husband and child.
