Odette New York is a jewelry line inspired by organic and industrial shapes, natural specimens, antique artifacts, and travel mementos; made using ancient and modern wax carving techniques and hand fabrication in my Brooklyn studio. Each original design begins from a pencil sketch that is carefully translated by hand into wax like a tiny sculpture before being cast into metal.

Items are listed as either Sterling Silver, Oxidized Sterling Silver, 14K Yellow Gold Vermeil and 14K Rose Gold Vermeil. Sterling Silver is a precious metal composed of 925 parts of pure silver and 75 parts alloy. Oxidized Sterling Silver is Sterling Silver that has a blackened finish. Over time, the dark finish of the pendant may wear to become an "antiqued looking" patina of dark grey and silver. Gold Vermeil is is a combination of precious metals; the inside core is pure Sterling Silver while the outer coating is electroplated with a thick layer of 14K gold. The nature of precious metals causes them to develop a natural patina over time from exposure to oxygen, chemicals, and oils in the skin. If you would like to discourage the tarnishing process, keep jewelry items clean and dry, and store in an airtight container like a ziploc bag or a jewelry box.
