Isidoro

Isidoro jewelry shop is Saarikorpi Design´s newborn.

 The attic of the old cowshed, build in 1914, used to be the home of the man who looked after the cowshed; it also housed the milkmaids families. 

The floor of the attic was rotten, the walls and ceiling decayed. The place looked like a bomb had gone off, but we saw immediately that this would make a great workshop for us.

Jewellery designer Kirsti Doukas and Master Goldsmith Kristian Saarikorpi working in their renovated studio. Saarikorpi Design Ltd was founded by Kristian in 2000 and Kirsti became a partner in 2006.

Isidoro jewelry shop is more resent project, it opened in 13.5.2012, conveniently just below Saarikorpi Design´s work shop.
"Sketching is my favorite phase in jewelry making. If I´m doing something for my client I do a lot of background work and think about a story for the piece I´m making. I make unique pieces for my own enjoyment all the time. Some I have kept in trust for my daughters."
"I am not a computer nerd but I have always been interested in mastering technology. These days I would not dream of working solely with my bare hands, and I made good use of IT-technology in my Master Goldsmith´s degree, too. I want to combine state-of-the-art technology and handicraft. I use them to create something new and unequalled."
  
"Modern technology makes work more efficient and gives more possibilities but Of course, it´s no use having the technology if the goldsmith doesn´t have solid professional skill. He or She must know the materials and how to make use of modeling programs."
