Wild Thing by Karen Walker

Taking us on an exotic journey to rainforests, savannas and grasslands, Karen Walker’s new collection Wild Thing celebrates three spectacular creatures and the nature that surrounds them.

After almost two years of uncertainty and restricted international travel, Karen Walker’s new collection Wild Thing takes us far away, dreaming of intrepid journeys through the dense African jungle. The orangutan, the giraffe and the elephant are superstars in this collection, miniaturised as pendants and earrings each available in sterling silver, 9 carat rose gold and 9 carat yellow gold.

Over the years Karen Walker has had many iconic pendants from the Runaway Girl to the classic bow. This collection is well-thought, intricate and distinct, so there’s no doubt that Wild Thing is set to become one of her most popular.

This collection would be perfect for Christmas or bridesmaid gifting. It’s fun and modern, while also remaining timeless and a piece to wear for years to come.

First up, the orangutan. For the earrings, a pair of mischievous orangutans hang from loops of fine chain set on round studs. In the matching necklace, the orangutan cleverly hangs from an adjustable fine chain, as though swinging through the rainforest ceiling. Both pieces are playful designs for those wanting something fun but still tasteful.

The giraffe earrings showcase these tall and bold creatures pose beneath the hot savanna sun, suspended from a pair of hooks. Elegant in style these earrings are set to make a statement. The necklace showcases the slender long neck and the intricate detailing on the body. This piece represents elevation and uniqueness.

The elephant stands with its trunk pointed upwards dispensing good luck, suspended from an adjustable fine chain. Bold and majestic, the necklace represents strength and happiness. For earrings, the elephants are suspended from dainty sleeper hoops. Worn together they are seen marching in unity, highlighting strength in numbers.

Possibly one of the most simple but show-stopping designs in this collection is the bamboo hoops, sleepers and rings. The fine lines on curved lengths of bamboo seen on the ring and the hoops are delicate and bold all in one. While the sleepers are dainty as a pair of leaves dangle from a culm of bamboo. While the animals are the centre of this collection, the bamboo reminds us that there is beauty all around us, in the most simple forms.

This collection is simultaneously distinct and effortless. The pieces have been designed to leave a lasting impression on anyone they come across. They are thought-provoking and conversation-starting. They are everything we love about Karen Walker and more.
