Nord Emporium handcrafts original Viking jewellery designs. Silversmith Piotr Bibliw researches historical findings and creates exact models of original pieces. Inspired by these he crafts modern designs with a medieval twist. Piotr is an enthusiast of the Viking culture and travels with his jewellery far and wide to Viking festivals and cultural re-enactments. Nord Emporium was first opened in Ireland in 2016 though Piotr has been working with metals since 2005. Based in Cork overlooking a thousand-year-old port, where Viking ships berthed, precious metals are molded with precision and care in the Nord Emporium studio.
