Bio

Nicole Duranton Sigl

Owner, Designer and Maker at NDS Jewellery

Bavarian-born, then semi-nomadic but now (mostly) settled in West Cork, Ireland, together with my family and assorted wildlife. With a strong background in academia and a dedicated jack of all trades approach to life, I began studying as well as teaching myself metal smithing in 2014. Being a magpie, collector and lover of all things shiny, I have been involved with jewellery, gemstones as well as art and design for most of my life. I am convinced within myself that the world needs beauty, meaning, and creativity as an anchor of hope.
