sordo© is a line of collectable creations in fluid dialogue with design, artisanship and culture. Founded by Monica Sordoin 2012 and born out of a homeward bound voyage to Caracas, sordo© blossomed in New York into a life project ofworldly sensibility.
Design as the expression that bridges forms and techniques sits at the heart of Monica’s artistic process. Fueled by innovation and experimentation, soul and precision, her creations are reminiscent of her Caribbean memories and deeply influenced by the minimalistic lines of her modern, Latin American heritage. The study of voluminous shapes, organic textures and dynamic proportions—distinctively present across her jewelry practice—are now further advanced with the development of sculptural objects of desire. Throughout Sordo’s creative manifestations a common thread prevails: the pursuit of permanence in design beyond a moment in time.
In tandem with the philosophy that has defined her jewelry since its inception, this renewed era of sordo© lives in between Venezuela, with the introduction of Salon Caracas, an evolving experimental space and virtual window; Peru, where Monica first planted the seeds and forged a bond of commitment, crafting jewelry alongside jewelry masters known for their ancestral techniques and skilled precision; and Mexico, where she collaborates with artisans in the sourcing, building and creation of functional design objects.
Ever in motion and deeply rooted in a collaborative philosophy and the Latin and International design community, Mónica has been tapped for a number of distinguished projects and is a proud CFDA member since 2015. She infuses her designer vision, artist sensibility, and artisan heart into the creation of timeless pieces that exist between sculpture and artful collectables.
