Together Journal is excited to announce the release of PART 2 of Karen Walker’s newest jewellery collection, The Navigator. Featuring boat anchors, bells and a detailed seahorse, this collection is sure to leave you dreaming of seaside romance and nautical adventure.
Launching her latest jewellery collection with a Champagne bottle
aimed square across the prow, Karen Walker digs into all things
nautical and sea-going.
The collection, entitled The Navigator, stars a series of delicate,
detailed pendants of ship and sea icons: a ship’s bell, a captain’s
whistle and a be-roped anchor alongside an incredibly detailed
seahorse and fishing lure.
All hands on deck for the voyage including the iconic Runaway Girl
appearing sans her regulation stick and bindle, this time toting a
nautical burgee over her shoulder and wearing a sailor’s cap and
plimsoll shoes. She’s centred on a compass-like disc outlined with
fine rope which appears on a classic signet ring and as a pair on
huggie hoops. The disc also appears double-sided and spinning
with an anchor on the reverse as a ring and as a pendant.
For Karen, a lifelong Aucklander who grew up tootling around
the waters of the Hauraki Gulf on the Walker family boat, the
sea’s never been far from her heart or her eye. “I grew up on the
water and I wanted this collection to reflect that sense of tradition
and romance that boating life always evokes for me,” says Karen.
Karen lives minutes from the Waitematā Harbour and enjoys
daily glimpses of the sea from her home and office. To continue
her ongoing love affair with the sea she’s currently taking sailing
lessons with the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron.
The Navigator is docking on 14 October and 18 November 2020
in all Karen Walker stores, on karenwalker.com and in select
boutiques, department stores and jewellers.
