One of the most rewarding processes while we were starting up Myth & Symbol has been meeting the designers and makers. We thought it would be meaningful for people to know who made the products they are buying and the stories behind all the items we selected for the store. Check back in to learn more as we highlight each person. First up is Jennifer from Odette NY.
Odette NY is a Brooklyn-based jewelry line founded in 2006 by Jennifer Sarkilahti. Her work is inspired by organic and industrial shapes, natural specimens, uncommon artifacts, and primitive forms. Jennifer uses ancient and modern wax carving techniques and hand fabrication to lend her jewelry, in her words, a delightfully “textured, hand-drawn, and unconventional” aesthetic.
Not just the mind behind a richly imagined jewelry line, Jennifer is also a gifted photographer. Her lookbooks are works of art in their own right. When we last visited, she had chocolate ready, tea brewing, and great Brooklyn recommendations – she has supported us from the start, and we couldn’t be happier to carry her work in our store.
Next up, MCMC Fragrances.
