Camila and I know what it’s like to be the shortest person in the room. Sometimes, being one too many centimeters shorter than your friends can really blow your confidence. All of this pressure can leave you with low self-esteem and self-confidence. That’s why we designed Sylca for everyone—every height, every size and every age and stage of life. Remember, there are tons of short and beautiful people in the world. Wear a bold statement necklace from Sylca and watch your self confidence soar!

Summer’s coming 🙂 There’s nothing more exciting than setting your sights on a road trip with the girls or a grand adventure with the family. But, when you hit the road, who wants a bag to weigh you down?
With an average weight of a few ounces, Sylca Designs jewelry is the only kind you’ll want to pack when traveling! Especially today, with everyone trying to avoid airline fees for checked luggage, traveling light is the only way.
Our recommendation? Tuck three statement necklaces in between your cotton shirts, a few pairs of earrings and statement rings in a nylon zipped pouch, and you’re on your way. Pack even less clothing than usual, because with a statement necklace, you’ll be able to transform one black dress into three different looks.
Watch out world! You are going places.

2016’s Color of the Year is: Rose Quartz AND Serenity!
Pantone rocked the design world in December when it announced there would be not one but two shades for its 2016 “Color of the Year.” The two colors are Rose Quartz, a girly, pastel pink, and Serenity, a soft blue. These colors will reign supreme this year on catwalks, in floral arrangements, throughout marketing materials, and yes, in jewelry!
According to Pantone’s website
, the annual Color of the Year is meant to serve as a symbol and express a shared worldwide mood and attitude. Color experts from around the world chose Rose Quartz and Serenity because of the compassionate, calming properties they both possess. Pantone’s site states that Rose Quartz is warm and embracing, while Serenity is cool and tranquil, and that, together, the two reflect “connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.”
On that note, while we can only guess at how consumer-oriented industries will introduce Rose Quartz and Serenity into their everyday vernacular, we are excited to announce several trend-friendly pieces that you’ll love wearing this year and for years to come!
Pantone suggests pairing Rose Quartz and Serenity for a dose of calm and relaxation. We love this idea and are already looking forward to seeing the ways our customers create striking outfits using both shades, but don’t feel like both colors have to be worn together. We recommend you have fun playing with the colors on their own and see what works best for you!
We have good news for ladies looking to keep their jewelry collections on trend throughout 2016: Our latest collection features several handcrafted statement necklaces with color trends in mind – especially Rose Quartz!
Sylvia is wearing one of our new circle pendant statement necklaces that is offered in multiple colorways, but we absolutely adore the feminine yet confident look of this pink version! The cord is adjustable, so it’s easy to play with different lengths for any and every outfit. It’s lightweight, making it an easy choice to wear alone or with additional necklaces as a simple “pop” of pink. One of our favorite features is that the circle pendant can also be worn as a bangle – talk about versatile! The circle pendant necklace is available for order here.
Camila and Sylvia are wearing four necklaces in total, which goes to show how flawless layering can look if done right! We especially love the geometric touches on both our Pink Cube Necklace and Pink and Gold Necklace. Beautiful on their own, both of these necklaces can be worn as a single strand with other necklaces for a unique look or doubled for an easy splash of color. If you’re a little more daring, you can stay on trend by wearing either of these beautiful handcrafted statement necklaces over a pale blue shirt. (Read our blog about how to wear statement necklaces with any neckline for tips!)
According to Pantone, 2016’s Color of the Year evokes a “sense of composure” and bring “feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.” Whether or not you feel more serene and compassionate wearing these colors, we know you’ll feel beautiful!

With winter finally ending, now’s the time to rethink your wardrobe for the warmer weather!!! Here are 4 Spring trends your closet is begging for… But remember style isn’t about chasing every single trend, Instead it’s really about curating your own versions that make you feel confident and make you shine.
1) Statement Slip-Ons
It’s a no-brainer that slip-on sneakers are one of the easiest and most versatile shoes you can have in your wardrobe. For spring, go brighter and bolder. You can even experiment matching that bold slip on with your jewelry.

Today is a bit of a sad day because it is our LAST outfit inspiration of the year that will have a summer outfit. So here it goes, bye bye summer….. Do we really have to part ways already???
On a positive note, we do have Labor day weekend coming up so we need to focus on all the fun we will have while we say goodbye. What are you guys doing this Labor Day weekend? We have family coming into town to visit! Our niece/granddaughter will be here so we couldn’t be happier 🙂 🙂 She is now 6 months old, can you believe it- time really does fly.
Today’s outfit is simple yet so comfortable and stylish. This flowy pink dress is so versatile and easy to wear that it ended up being one of my most popular dresses, and probably the most practical one to style — especially during those HOT summer days. I can dress it up with a fancier statement necklace and some heals or make it casual with flip flops and an easy-going summery necklace.
Hope you guys like today’s outfit!

We are soo happy for fall fashion! it is our favorite season, but it is difficult to figure out what to wear when the weather outside is still so HOT and Humid. Today we finally have a “colder” day and decided to bring out some of our fall fashion items!
Here I put a black flowy top from one of my favorite designers Stella Carakasi. They do this style in a few different colors, but I bought it in black because I think it is a great canvas for our artsy handcrafted necklaces. This top is so easy and comfortable, not to mention versatile. I can wear it over jeans, printed pants, or a skirt, and accent it with a fabulous statement necklace.
I paired this black top with a pair of wide printed pants. These pants are great because they can be worn over many seasons. In spring/summer I will wear these with a lighter fabric top and in fall/winter I will use a sweater or long sleeve shirt. Oh and don’t forget your hands! Always add a handcrafted ring and/or bracelet to make sure your outfit comes together nicely.
We would love to see your outfits that include some Sylca handcrafted jewelry! Tag us on Instagram or email us your pictures.
Some of you might have already heard of us talking about Pearl S. Buck, and how happy we are to have our handcrafted statement jewelry in the gift shop. But for those who have not seen any of our other posts we would like to introduce you to Pearl S. Buck. She was a fantastic writer and an outstanding citizen of the world. Her legacy unites nations, societies, communities and individuals with an appreciation for cultural differences. Her foundation provides opportunities to explore and appreciate other cultures and help build better lives for children around the globe. We are truly happy and blessed to be able to sponsor a child in need and work with this phenomenal organization.
We invite you to browse through their website- and hope you fall in love with this organization as much as we did. And who knows maybe you will also find a child to sponsor.
