Evelyn Odette Mulholland’s brand Odette Jewellery, draws on influences from industrial art, architecture and has a special interest in the science of the natural world. She believes jewellery is a form of engineering that stems from organic creative processes, it is drawn together with intricate mechanisms and components. Often sculptural or architectural in feel, they reflect a fascination with industry and nature, the classical and the kinetic. An interest in biomimicry has shaped her work, often lending static objects movement and meaning. Evelyn was born in New Zealand but emigrated to Western Australia in her teens. She sat at a jeweller’s bench for the first time when she was eight and gravitated towards the profession, studying Jewellery Design and Construction at university. She moved to London in 1999 and worked in Hatton Garden for 15 years, while also making costume jewellery for designers in Knightsbridge. She now practices from her workshop in east London.
