Karen Walker - Sterling Silver Love Letter Hoops
Sterling Silver Single Love Letter Hoop from the Karen Walker Jewellery, Love Letter Collection.
When Shakespeare pointed out that brevity was the soul of wit he didn’t pause to think “Hey, I could tweet that!”
Modern life moves fast. 140 characters? That’s so verbose! Karen Walker is taking the lexicon further, pushing literary brevity to its ultimate limits. OMG, IMO and WTF – time to pare back those words to bare letters and let Karen’s new collection of alphabetical jewellery do your talking.
A statement for the silver-tongued – or those who favour yellow or rose gold – the 26 letters in Walker’s LOVE LETTER collection all come with her signature arrow detailing. Both stud and hoop earrings are sold as singles so you can spell it out, while the necklaces are intended to be worn layered up to create your message. And for a philatelic take on the lettering theme, there’s also a Karen Walker Runaway stamp to postmark your intent.
“It’s about telling your story in a way that’s subversive and intimate at the same time,” Karen says. “Literally making a statement with your jewellery.”
Spell out your name. Pass on a secret. Create a code you can live by. Your ears are no longer doing the listening. Now they’re doing the talking.
Letters are sold as single hoops.
