Hit the Road with Sylca

Hit the road with sylca

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.

XOXO

Sylvia & Camila

How To Wear Pantone’s Color Of The Year With These Necklaces

Sylca's founders
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!
Rose quartz circle pendant
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.
Layerin Necklaces

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!

How It’s Made – Behind the Design at Sylca Design

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…

How To Do The Transition From Summer To Fall

Hi There

Handcrafted beaded necklace in orange

Printed pants, Black top and handcrafted beaded necklace in orange

Printed pants handcrafted bracelet

white handcrafted ring and bracelet

 

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.

XOXO

The Perfect Outfit For Those Warm Fall Days and Cold Fall Nights

Happy Friday my friends!!! Are you so excited that it is the weekend again??

Now that Fall is here dressing for those early autumn days can be tricky. It is warm during the day, but gets a little chilly at night. Figuring out what to wear can sometimes give me a headache, but today we have figured it out! I wore a little black dress with short black booties (did I tell you how much I looove boot season)!! My absolute favorite 🙂 Once the sun starts setting and the weather gets a little chillier I can add the long cardigan with Aztec print in grey! I love that it is long because it covers my legs too so I don’t get cold at night.

Of course as you all know I can never miss my accessories. For us here at Sylca an outfit is never really completed till we add a nice unique statement necklace, and some other jewelry pieces of course.

Perfect fall outfit
