Sarkilahti’s designs are inspired by organic and geometric shapes, ancient symbols and primitive forms.
With a focus on tactile surfaces, each design begins from a pencil sketch that is carefully carved by hand into wax before being cast into metals as varied as recycled sterling silver and 14K gold, brass, bronze, diamonds and gemstones.
Founded in 2006, Odette New York is designed and made locally in New York City. The brand has been featured internationally in Vogue, Elle, Porter, InStyle and Marie Claire.
Trained in fine arts, Sarkilahti received her Master of Fine Arts in Painting from George Mason University. She lives with her husband and son in Brooklyn.
