The Wonderfully Beautiful Spirit of the Hunt
Even Bunnies play at La Chasse
This amethyst jewel toned Rabbit throw, designed by Klaus Haapaniemi with designer Mia Wallenius, is inspired by nature and fairy tales. The wool yarns have been hand dyed and loomed, coming only in limited editions.
I am clearly obsessed with all of this and, therefore, I’m adding this to my Wish List - and your Gift Guide! About $650 at The Finnish Design Shop.
Beholden • An Illustrious Marquis
Christina arrived at the atelier with a marvelous loose diamond Marquis which was a gift bestowed by her in-law’s. It was beyond beautiful to begin with, and I had the luxury of creating a custom platinum ring for her with the diamond. The East-meets-West orientation of the setting was designed for minimal visibility from above with a maximum attention to detail despite the innate simplicity and geometry of the stone.
Beholden • The Snow White Emerald
More than a color, what has come to be known as the Emerald-cut is also one of the chicest of the step-cut, faceted shapes. Boasting a one carat White Diamond at its center, this newest addition to the Hazeline line is set in Rose Gold + flanked by tiny pavé Black Diamonds in a White Gold shank.
Wishes and the first installment of our Gift Guide
If you happen to be in Miami- The Newsstand at Standard Hotel//Art Basel is having its closing party tonight- and if I could teleport myself anywhere on earth, I’d go from chilly upstate Nyc to there! Ryan McGinness, Glenn O’Brien and Cheryl Dunn are among the luminaries whose work is present at the 4 day pop-up.
And to begin our Holiday Gift Guide [ahem, or Wish List is maybe more accurate] two of these can be yours/someone special’s this holiday:
EVERYBODY STREET- $12.99 Dunn’s first feature length documentary -a soon to be cult classic- explores street photography’s role in art and culture with NYC’s most iconic characters -Ricky Powell and Mary Ellen Mark among them. This is 101 minutes of awesome is culled from 9 years of Dunn’s work captured on video and in still photographs.
Beholden • A Bea Wedding Story
A letter from one of our wonderful clients that’s sure to inspire on this December day:
I met Anna Sheffield which was truly an honor. She asked me to send pictures of our story since the engagement with the Bea! So here they are-
Engaged at hotel del Coronado in San Diego, married in a castle in England and did ’trash the wedding dress’ on our honeymoon in Hawaii.
Hope to visit your store again soon!
Our Bea Arrow ring brings Holiday Cheer to the Editor’s of POPSUGAR
“We’ve loved Anna Sheffield for years for her Bing Bang line (and those engagement rings!), but there is nothing sweeter than this vaguely beelike Bea Arrow Ring ($975) with a citrine center stone and side black diamonds. This would be more than welcome under my tree!”
