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!

How It’s Made: Behind the Design at Sylca Design
How we started…
THE LOVE OF GREAT DESIGN has always been a part of our Sylca story and our inspiration to create can truly be drawn from anywhere. This journey to design began when Sylvia and her husband owned a small construction supply company in Colombia. With the aspiration to help create a feeling of comfort with luxury — blending the practical with the desirable — Sylvia drew on her creativity to help home builders design and decorate living spaces that evoked emotion within their model homes. After moving to the United States, her love for fashion and accessories took over as she began the next step of the journey working for a variety of designers styling consumers, and selling to boutiques locally. Her keen eye for trends, great color, and unique design blossomed the idea to create her own line of jewelry.
Where we are now…

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.

Meet Ellen! Owner of Victorian Inspirations in Portland Connecticut. She started this new and exciting venture in early 2015 after she semi-retired from being a Chief Financial Officer/Financial Analyst. As Ellen says “Having always wanted to open a small boutique or elegant gift shop, I decided that timing in life is everything and now was the time to reach for the stars to bring my vision to life.” Kudos to Ellen for reaching for her dreams. Here at Sylca we know how difficult it is to start your own business so we give lots of props to anyone who is strong enough to make the jump!! She is our Woman Crush Wednesday (WCW) not only because she is beautiful, but because of her confidence and dedication to make her dream a reality! (we send you a BIG High-Five Ellen)
If you live in Portland CT or happen to be there stop by her store and see all of the fun goodies! The shop is not necessarily related to Victorian gifts or traditions but it refers to the style, elegance and class of a bygone era. With the holidays right around the corner boutique shopping is the way to go as you can find unique and exciting products!
If you can’t make it to her shop – stop by her facebook page and show her some love!
