Mari Isopahkala's magical Winter Pearl
The Winter Pearl jewelry designed by designer Mari Isopahkala captures in silver the fleeting, magical moment of an autumn morning, when the night frost loosens its grip and the first rays of the morning sun melt the dew into small drops on the leaves and grass. Winter Pearl is based on Isopahkala's unique competition work, which won the international Next Episode jewelry design competition organized in honor of Lapponia's 50th anniversary in 2009.
