Christina Odegard makes one of a kind and limited edition jewelry pieces in her Los Angeles studio. Her approach emphasizes series that relate to each other and grow from one piece to the next. Christina has an artisanal craft sensibility, paired with an appreciation of fine materials; she hand-carves raw materials such as amber, quartz, and semi-precious stones to set in gold.
“Translating an idea into form always surprises me. My goal in making is to create a calm, quiet beauty, inspired by the natural world but organized into an essence of the form I make. I’m curious to discover over time the subtleties of both material and form. Some carved pieces take me many weeks to complete. The intensity of working with the materials becomes a meditation for me, an endless loop of discovery.”
