Larkspur & Hawk founder and designer, Emily Satloff, ventured to the enchanting island of Corsica, France to find inspiration for her Tessa collection. She was so fascinated by the color of the water, she had her husband taking close-up photos of its hues, so she would not forget the illuminating intensity that she wished to capture in this collection. It was while there that she was became enamored of the colorful landscape, scenery and magical sunsets and was able to imagine the resulting collection.
“When I close my eyes and imagine this view, I see a jewel-like arrangement of brilliant blue water highlighted by the unique, coral clay roofs of the old town of Calvi where we stayed,” said Emily.
This collection features elliptical topaz stones with gradations of color that capture the nuances of the changing light and colors witnessed throughout her days in Corsica. In addition to the blue hues, coral, blush, and peach have been used to evoke the colors of the Calvi architecture and rocky coastline.
