Odette New York is a Brooklyn-based jewelry line inspired by organic and industrial shapes, natural specimens, artifacts and primitive forms; made using ancient and modern wax carving techniques and hand fabrication. With an emphasis on artistry and craft, each design begins from a pencil sketch that is carefully translated by hand into wax like a small scale sculpture before being cast into materials as varied as recycled sterling silver, brass, bronze, diamonds, and 14K gold. Founded in 2006 by artist Jennifer Sarkilahti, Odette jewelry is designed and crafted by hand in her Brooklyn studio. Sarkilahti studied fine arts, receiving her Master of Fine Arts in Painting from George Mason University and her hand-textured surfaces have become signature to the collection. Odette New York jewelry is made in New York City.
