Sarkilahti's new collection, Minerva Divinus, is breathtaking.  My favorite yet.  In Sarkilahti's own words, the collection is "inspired by artifacts and ancient mythologies, divine proportion, and the geometry of anatomy."  I'm not sure yet when it will be available for purchase, but I already have two of the necklaces (the small rib in the last photo, and one other not pictured).  Don't hate me, but studio mates get first dibs.

P.S. Do you recognize the model?  It's me.

It really is a gorgeous collection! Her concept is so inspired. I love how the large pieces still have a subtle feel to them. Lovely modeling!

this collection is really, really beautiful. my favorite piece is the first, silver necklace. it is a statement piece and also very delicate / subtle at the same time - a very hard thing to achieve!

oh, the model is pretty okay too :)

I am also blown away by the first piece. I love the theme of "geometry of anatomy." I am imagining the various bones and body systems that inspired these pieces and am seeing all kinds of possibilities in the shapes. Jennifer did a gorgeous job with this new collection. It is distinct from, but also complimentary to, her animals. Lucky you on the first dibs...one of these days I will drop enough hints that E.J. will give me an Odette piece for a special occasion! ;-)

I haven't bought a new piece of jewelry in a long while, but now I'm really tempted!

Beautiful! Both you and the jewelry! :)
It must me so wonderful to share a studio. I've just moved away from a shared studio, and I am really missing the company!

I like how the pieces are bold yet the metal work is delicate.

I also like the clothes that you are wearing, though we only get hints of what they are.

So inspiring!

ooh, these are gorgeous! they look beautiful with the mociun prints you're wearing, too. ps: your last photos of mociun were really helpful -- i bought her waterline mountain print dress after seeing it here. it's stunning. so, thank you!

i am currently recovering (ish) from a broken back... and have been searching everywhere for a piece of jewelry shaped like a spine, or vertebrae.
i can't describe how much i would love one of hers!
looking forward to the update when these are for sale!
