All the jewelry magpies out there know and lust for Odette NY pieces. Inspired by organic and geometric shapes, ancient symbols, and primitive forms, designer Jennifer Sarkilahti's well-appointed label is perfection. Click for more as the brooklyn-based jeweler takes a Motherhood moment and answers #thesamethreequestions.
It's safe to say that Jennifer spearheaded a movement. The minimal and organic stylings in current trends echo really what she has been doing for years. The textural, handcrafted forms reflect her fine-arts background, and artifact-like themes of bones, arcs, arrows, and figural shapes feel like wearable storytelling. So it was no surprise that her instagram feed scrolls like a gorgeous coffee table book itself, w beautiful captures of jewelry moments, family travel, and architecture. We were thrilled she took the time to share a few of her stories.
1.PS: Tell us a bit what's behind your children's names:
Luca Sarkilahti, 22 months
J: Luca is derived from the Latin word lux meaning light. We chose it because we love how it sounds. His middle name is my last name, Sarkilahti. It’s Finnish. I wanted both of our names to be a part of his.
2.PS: Can you share a few of your Motherhood Favorites?
Reading! When I can squeeze in the time. Right now I am reading Patti Smith’s M Train.
Riding the East River Ferry just for fun! Luca loves to watch as we sail under bridges or watch barges pass by.
3. PS: Would you mind sharing a SCRIBBLE? (a doodle, a recipe, a poem- anything!)
