Known for its historical reinterpretations, Larkspur & Hawk is pleased to introduce Illustrated, a new capsule collection inspired by a collaborative wallpaper design entitled Emily's Garden. The collection celebrates the many ways in which founder Emily Satloff's inspiration can take form.
A folkloric mural-like wallpaper boasting verdant gardens and lush vistas populated by a menagerie of animals is brought to life in a unique fine jewelry collection featuring one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces, each made by hand in gold with precious and semi-precious gemstones.
"The way I wanted to create my animals harkened back to the Renaissance, when animals would be informed by a stone or pearl," notes Emily. "Each animal has a playful, anthropomorphic signature. Sebastian, the parrot, is the dandy ringleader of the menagerie and also the most ambitious example of craftsmanship from the collection. With a body of blue lace agate and distinctive coiffure, Sebastian sports a rainbow hued cape of cascading pavé diamonds, emeralds, sapphires, and tourmalines, complemented by diamond waistcoat buttons."
