”Creation is my great passion. I constantly see new possibilities and forms. The urge to create has always been a part of me. I find my inspiration in fashion, architecture, furniture, nature and in people. I am always very observant, and I see details that inspire me everywhere.”
- Pernille Corydon
Pernille Corydon was born and raised in Kerteminde on Funen in Denmark. Her interest in form and creativity has always been a part of her life. In 2008, she started designing and producing jewellery in Denmark. Pernille Corydon’s jewellery is characterized by its Scandinavian simplicity and geometric forms. The pieces are stylish, feminine and timeless. The possibilities for creating personal styles with her pieces are endless.
Pernille Corydon's collection
Pernille Corydon divides her collection into sub-collections. Each of these collections is inspired by all aspects of life and nature.
Pernille Corydon often takes pictures of architectural lines, picturesque scenes or simply current fashions, wherever she is in the world. Almost immediately, they become small paper sketches to be used in the next Pernille Corydon collection.
Her Brick collection, for example, was inspired by a landscape of fields she saw out of the window on a flight to Holland.
