Mari Isopahkala

Designer and Master of Arts Mari Isopahkala won the Next Episode jewelry design contest held by Lapponia Jewelry to highlight its 50th anniversary. Mari's Winter pearl silver jewelry collection was launched in the autumn 2011, based on her unique competition design. The collection quickly reached sales success and in 2013 Mari Isopahkala was named in Lapponia's high profile designer team as a permanent member.

Jewelry design is a new territory for this young designer who has previously worked with glass, textiles, furniture, tableware and lamps. But she greets jewelry design with the same curiosity and respect as any new material or technique she encounters.

Mari Isopahkala's designs highlight the beauty of the person wearing the jewelry. Already in the early design stages she tries to find ways to make the jewelry boost the user's self confidence and courage. Although Mari is known for large and showy designs, in her mind the jewelry should never be the center of attention diluting everything else. Jewelry should highlight, not to steal the show.

In addition to beauty and visuality in jewelry, Mari Isopahkala also highly values functionality. The jewelry should adapt to body's curves and movement. "When I design jewelry I like to put them on human figures in my mind. This is the start for the design. Human. For me jewelry design is design for human skin."
