Mari Isopahkala works extensively and internationally in various fields of product design. She is one of the best-known and most awarded designers of her generation in Finland. She won Finland’s Young Designer of the Year Prize in 2013. This versatile designer has worked actively in jewelry design since 2009, after she won the Lapponia Next Episode jewelry design contest. The impressive Winter Pearl collection, based on her winning design, is part of the Art by Kalevala collection today.
Isopahkala wants to design jewelry that emphasizes the beauty of the wearer. When the jewelry is put on, the wearer’s posture straightens by itself and the person radiates self-confidence and presence. Well-designed jewelry brings out the best in the person wearing it.
