Odette New York was founded by Jennifer Sarkilahti, an artist who specializes in romantic, ancient-inspired jewelry. Jennifer designs and crafts each piece by hand in her Brooklyn studio, drawing inspiration from both organic and industrial textures.
Ancient artifacts, natural forms, and primitive anatomy come together to inspire each collection. Odette pieces are uniquely textured, a result of the wax carving and hand casting processes that Jennifer has been refining since 2006. True to her roots as a Master of Fine Arts and Painting, Jennifer’s design process begins with a pencil sketch, building in her hand-textured surfaces into a signature part of her collections. The Odette aesthetic balances edgy with romantic, raw with delicate, tapping into details that have survived over the centuries and continue to be coveted.
The History of Lost-wax Casting
This multi-step technique begins with a wax model of the piece carved by hand. Next, a relief mould is made from rubber or silicone and the original wax is melted away as it sets, resulting in a detailed template. Eventually, metal is poured into this mould, creating a duplicate of the original model. Widespread in Europe until the 18th century, the process of casting wax-carvings into metal jewelry can be traced even further back to ancient civilizations around the world, including India, China, and Egypt through literary and archeological evidence.
