2011 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE - CALYPSO STUDIOS review


Now I am huge fan of jewelry, but what woman is not to be honest.  I mean I do not think a woman can have too much.  With that said some of my favorite pieces of jewelry is the beaded or handmade jewelry.  You can find high quality hand crafted jewelry pieces (like the ones below) at Calypso Studios.



They also have these adorable shag bags too.


Now a little more about Calypso Studios.

ABOUT THE COMPANY


Calypso Studios debuted in January 2007 with a line of jewelry and accessories created from the earth's natural elements: clay, shell and glass. The new line was immediately embraced and praised for the unique designs and mediums. The designs are on-trend and span the ages in both technique and the persons choosing these distinctive and exclusive designs. More than a conversation piece, Calypso Studios jewelry symbolizes good taste for an independent spirit. 




MY THOUGHTS


Now I was blown away by the beautiful products on their website.  There was such a huge assortment of beautiful products. I was fortunate enough to receive 4 products to review which included a wrap bracelet, 2 stretch rings, and a comforting cross.


My wrap bracelet is the Pink Lemonade Carnival Wrap Bracelet which is 20 inches long.  The picture above does not do the bracelet justice.  I love it so much.  I have received so many compliments and it is not hard to know why.  The bracelet is definitely high quality and well crafted.  They come in an assortment of colors including Plum, Ocean, Multi, Citrus, and Caramel.  Each one of them is equally beautiful and would make a great addition to any woman's collection.

















These were the 2 rings I received above and I have to tell you I love them as well.  They are cute enough for everyday wear and elegant enough for a dressy occasion. I simply love them as a thumb ring and they fit most of my fingers too since they are stretchy. 



Now this is a Comforting Cross and it sits on my desk to remind me that I can do it. I love the way it feels and I love the colors of it.  My kids even love it and I plan to get them one when they get a little bigger - maybe graduation gifts ( I still got a long way to go but I like to think ahead).  They are made of clay and even though they are hard, they feel kinda soft too.  They also fit nicely in your hand.  I love these so much!  

Now the site has so much more to offer than what I have shown you and they are all affordable priced based on the quality of the the craftsmanship.  Wrap bracelets are $20.00 each which is a steal considered the labor put into them ( trust me I am currently trying to make my own wrap bracelets and they can be tricky at first.).  The Comforting Crosses are $ 20.00 each also and you can look at their complete collections in the online store and purchase them there.  They also have several collections available which you can look at here.

Now there is definitely a great gift in their online store for that special lady in your life and also Comforting Crosses will work for guys and girls.  So be sure to grab one for that special person in your life or your bestie!

* I received the above mentioned product for review purposes only.  The above mentioned opinion is completely honest and completely my own. 

Now I have some great news one winner will win their own wrap bracelet in their choose of colors from the following pink, light blue, light green, white, black, blue, purple, green metallic, and brown.  Just enter below in the Rafflecopter form.
