UNCONDITIONAL FREEDOM AND CODED MESSAGES BY NOMIS
I am no bird; and no net ensnares me: I am a free human being with an independent will.Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
When one imagines a pearl necklace, binary code is not the first thing that springs to mind. Yet that is exactly what Nomis has done.
The combination of perfect black pearls sourced from the sun-kissed waters of Tahiti and a cross pendant is no coincidence – it represents the timeless juxtaposition of light and darkness, the triumph of good over evil. The pearls, aligned in a binary sequence that spells out the word ‘freedom’, are a reminder that, even in the darkest times, freedom will return.
Attached to the necklace are transformable Nomis earrings, echoing the shape of human ears or replicating the contour of lungs, depending on how they are worn: as earrings, close to your rational brain, or as a pendant, close to your emotional heart. The necklace is also adorned with Nomis's newest pearl ear pins, enriching the design with an added layer of versatility.
You can style it all yourself. And, for our part, we try to do everything to make sure that people can play around with our jewelry in all the ways they want.Alyona Kiperman in an interview to The Jewelry Icon
Through her art, Alyona Kiperman, the visionary behind Nomis, aims to create a dialogue between jewelry and its wearer, empowering us to externalize our inner narratives.
The essence of Nomis jewelry is modularity and transformability. Everything can be combined, screwed together, or unscrewed. A single ring can transform into a brooch, a pendant, or a cuff. It is high jewelry for the free, creative, and inquisitive, where you become your own designer and stylist.
This avant-garde approach has culminated in the brand becoming a finalist in the Pearls Category of the esteemed COUTURE Design Awards, a distinction that speaks volumes in an industry where the new is often met with scepticism.
A different language is a different vision of life.Federico Fellini
Nomis echoes the spirit of the 21st century. The world is evolving, and with it, the realms of what is possible. In this ever-shifting landscape, Nomis’s jewelry stands as an affirmation to those who never stop asking questions.
The ink is still wet and the story is unfolding. And, as readers and admirers, we are invited to partake in this journey, challenging our preconceptions and enriching our senses.
The necklace in the image says ‘freedom’, but you can also order customised necklaces, with a message of your own choosing, spelled out in a binary code.
So what message to the world - and to yourself - would you want crafted in the language of pearls, beauty and Nomis?
