Together Journal is excited to announce the release of Karen Walker’s newest jewellery collection, The Navigator. Featuring the iconic Runaway Girl toting a sailor’s cap and plimsoll shoes, 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.
