Mervi Haapakoski is an Finnish artist currently living in Toronto. She received her MA from the University of Art and Design in Helsinki, Finland. Since 1994 she has worked as a hot glass artist. In 2008 she expanded her life long passion of knitting and crocheting into designing and producing her own line of jewellery.
There is a feel of airiness and light in her designs, such as in this Champagne Green Fresh Water Multi String Choker, made from champagne green fresh water pearls. The choker has a sterling silver clasp, and is crocheted with nylon coated metal wire.
