Welcome to Nordic Fairey: A Passion for Vintage Modernist Jewelry

Hello there, I'm Henna, a proud Finn who now calls the UK home. Since 2016, I've been on an extraordinary journey in the world of vintage and antique treasures.

My fascination with jewelry was kindled at a young age when I used to pick up vintage rhinestone brooches from Finnish flea markets, even before my school days began. This love for timeless elegance and artistry has never left me.

Embracing this passion, I embarked on a full-time venture in the vintage realm after bidding farewell to a career in the food industry that left me yearning for more fulfillment. This decision led me to delve into every aspect of my business, from sourcing and photographing to listing, polishing, pricing, and meticulous bookkeeping – all undertaken by me alone.

Intriguingly, my journey intersected with my husband's venture – he opened his own antique shop in Lincoln back in 2016. Drawing inspiration from this shared love for history and aesthetics, I began offering my vintage treasures within his shop's walls. However, my collection has since found a new home in the digital realm, allowing me to connect directly with jewelry enthusiasts like you.

While my initial inventory encompassed a wide array of vintage gems, my path gradually guided me toward a more focused passion: Nordic jewelry, with a particular fondness for Finnish pieces. Although my appreciation for diverse styles remains evident throughout my collection, my heart resonates most profoundly with the modernist and brutalist movements of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s.

Looking ahead, my journey is far from complete. I am excited to share that my dreams encompass not only preserving the treasures of the past but also creating new ones. I briefly studied goldsmithing, igniting a desire to craft my own jewelry pieces in the future, adding a personal touch to the timeless art I hold dear.

With this website, I aim to not only present my curated collection but also to provide you with a seamless way to embrace these timeless treasures. Beyond this online space, I also curate an Etsy page brimming with an eclectic array of items, ensuring there's always something that resonates with your unique taste.

Your presence here means the world to me. Thank you for embarking on this journey through time and artistry with Nordic Fairey.
