I am a designer and craftsperson Evelyn Odette Mulholland I was born and raised in New Zealand loving the great outdoors the ocean and nature, before moving to Western Australia with my family in my early teens.
I was always keen on craft and design, playing with clay and building ceramicsin my mothers studio from as young as I can remember and sitting at a jewellers bench for the first time when I was eight, it wasn't so much a choice to become a jeweller as a natural gravitation towards the joy that only a vocation using your hands to create something can bring.
I trained in Jewellery design and construction in Western Australia before moving to London in 1999 where I have worked in the Jewellery district of Hatton Garden for the last 15 years as well as Making and designing for luxury Costume jewellery designers in knightsbridge.
My own brand Odette Jewellery fuses classical design elements based on my love of industry & nature, using sculpture & architecture as inspiration and drawing on mythological themes. Using traditional fine jewellery techniques, each pieceis hand crafted to be a personal symbol for the wearer for their own innerstrengths, with an eye towards modern urban glamour.
I also love to be involved in making and designing commissioned pieces like bespoke wedding and engagement rings, please see bespoke commissions for examples.
