Glitterati: Odette New York

If you're a nature lover, check out the whimsical designs of Jennifer Sarkilahti, dubbed Odette New York. Taking inspiration from the flora and fauna around her, Jennifer creates a unique line of necklaces and earrings. In addition to the svelte snake are an abundance of bunnies, monkeys, birds, and other cute creatures made from sterling silver and solid gold.

You may not realize this, but making quality jewels is a lot of work. Jennifer's designs are all made from an intricate process requiring her to hand sketch everything, create a wax mold from the sketch, cast the metals, and polish the final pieces. Sounds like a lot of work, but well worth it!
