I walked the NYIGF for a day with a few friends, and while I was there, we visited Odette's booth. I was instantly taken by designer Jennifer Sarkilahti's soon-to-be launched collection called "Minerva Divinus". The necklace in the top photo is part of it.
I really love the textures she's using... they remind me of woodblock printing and linocut (see below), and defnitely give this entire line an artifact-y look, a great contrast of glowing metal with the brooding texture of a dark, folk art print... So very thoughtful, conveying a unique idea, using larger, thoughtful shapes and symbolic cutouts, and combining them with a really unique texture, to great effect. Just love the powerful mood coming through.

ps. I forgot to mention that I think I see a little owl face hiding in the pendant up there - which is really cool because the owl was Minerva's (Athena's) symbol. More about Minerva here - really cool!
