Our Newest Spring 2018 Collection was inspired by COLORS and the meaning behind them. What they make us feel and really what we wanted you guys to feel when wearing Sylca!
Some of the main color groups we used in the collection were blue, yellow, pink, orange, green, and black and white!
Let’s start with
Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. This is our temple and we need to take care of it! We wanted you to get the feeling of calm and tranquility when wearing our blue jewelry. Let us know if you get this feeling when shopping or wearing our new BLUE collection!
Now moving on to
Yellow produces a warming and cheerfulness effect, it is also known to stimulates mental activity, and generate energy. When designing this line we had one goal in mind to make you feel happy and cheerful! We hope we accomplish this when you see this new designs!
Keep posted to hear about our other color inspirations!

With the Christmas season upon us we wanted to share some of our favorite Colombian traditions with you!
We would kick off the Christmas season with Día de las Velitas’ or Day of the little Candles where everyone would decorate their houses with tons of candles and festive lights! It was always fun to walk around to see all the decorations!
Like most, some of our traditions include decorating the house with holiday decor, candles in the windows, a nativity scene, and of course, a Christmas tree! The nativity scene was especially important, as we would right letters to baby Jesus letting him know the presents we wanted each year!
The one tradition I loved most growing up was taking part in Novenas. This started on the 16th of December and went until Christmas eve. Each night we would gather with family and friends for prayers, caroling, and of course, yummy food!
What are some of your favorite Christmas traditions?
Our newest collection was inspired by the Suso Monastery in La Rioja Spain. It is most known for being the birthplace where the Spanish language was born, but we like to think of it as the birthplace where our newest collection was born!
La Rioja is not only home to the Suso Monastery but also a well know wine region in Spain, which to be honest was our main reason we were visiting. We enjoyed a beautiful afternoon in the bodega, or winery as we call it, tasting and learning about the many wines they made. While there, it was recommended to visit the Suso Monastery. Being that it was only about an hour away, we decided to go and we’re happy we did!
The Suso Monastery was a hidden gem we stumbled upon which then ended up to be so much more for us. The birth of our new collection! As we toured, we were immediately drawn to the colors and textures of the monastery’s architecture. The beautiful natural rock all throughout is the color palate we used for the collection. It’s definitely a palate that can be worn all year round!
