I n 1998, jewelry and interior designer K a t i e S c o t t b o o k m a r k e d a spread of a Vicente Wo l f - d e s i g n e d home in Architectural Digest — the budding designer was attracted to the peaceful note Wolf's vignettes convey. She still has the issue nearly 20 years later. The law of attraction worked: Scott befriended Wolf and has now collaborated with him on a jewelry collection, available via Scott's website and Wolf's showroom in New York. "I do not believe in coincidences, so I consider this to be a divine collaboration," Scott says. The fi rst series is inspired by nature and architecture, composed of gold, sterling silver, and leather, with white topaz and diamonds. The Agapi collection evokes the Himalayan Droesera fl ower known for its healing powers, while Rocca mimics rock formations and symbolize stability and strength. The exquisite Pine Needle pendant necklace and earrings honor the creativity of Natural Collaboration one of Wolf's friends: They were on a nature walk when she picked up pine needles and used them as earrings. "My aesthetic in interiors has always been about calm, detailed elements that translate into a soft environment that plays off nature," Wolf says. "This was the approach Katie Scott and I took to collaborate on this collection. I always wanted to design jewelry, and working with Katie provided special moments. Her focus on spirituality helped me fi nd a peaceful comfort when merging interior design with jewelry design. Not only is this collection a token of our love for design, it represents our inner peace." The duo formally launches the collection during a symposium at ABC Carpet and Home in New York Thursday, March 23. The event, hosted by New York Post's Wendy Goodman, includes a spirituality panel with New York Times best- selling author Marianne Williamson, Wolf, and Scott.
