Nina Røndes design stands out by having a rustic and at the same time a feminine distinctive character. The collection is a journey from Italy over the Byzantine to the Far East.
The creation is primarily named after epoch-giving female artists, where several of them have acted as a source of inspiration for Nina’s design.
“A piece of jewelry that you choose carefully is not just an item you adorn yourself with. An artistic expression that is added to your visual narrative simply by wearing it, look at each of your favorite jewelry as interpretations of the special that exists in you. Through the metaphorical language of the jewellery, it opens up an insight into who you are as an aesthetic being.”
Jewelry design has filled Nina’s life for so long that she doesn’t remember when it started. When the sisters bathed at the bottom of the cottage, she gathered stones on the beach. It was not the brightly colored porphyry and granite that recorded her, rather the natural skin of the black lava or the shimmering in the flint’s polish. She composed the stone collection on the terrace of the cottage, on shelves, on windowsills, and it was as if for her a new visual language emerged in the colors and the interaction of the shapes. Later, the layout of her living rooms, the direction of an everyday meal or a walk along the woodland had not just a rational aim. The daily ancettes were accessed from an aesthetic angle – which gradually became a way of looking at the world – gradually reflected in the music she heard, the poetry of bouquets from the flora of the ditch edges or the moods of the urban districts in the countries she visited.
Nina became a student at Værkstedet for Smykker og Brugsting by Goldsmith Carsten From. Now she was no longer in any doubt as to which way to follow. She looked to new places to inspire and suck up: At the School of Visual Arts, with a portrait photographer and at a cartoon studio – while sneaking to design jewelry at every available moment. Since then she drew the country around and exhibited her collections in castles and markets. And all of this led to the fact that today she has rediscovered the “summers of the beach side” in her jewellery store, Nina Rønde Jewelry at the Round Tower in the center of Copenhagen. Here she realizes what she has dreamed of since she was a child: for most of the hours of the day Nina is immersed in putting personality into the shaping of her organic jewelry, and sometimes she has to pinch herself in the arm as to whether she dares to believe that the dream has really come true.
