Calypso Studios: Necklace Review and Giveaway

CalypsoLogo130h

Calypso Studios debuted in 2007 with a line of jewelry and accessories made using only the earth’s natural elements: clay, shell and glass. They create fashionable jewelry including everything from rings, necklaces, earrings, totes and more. Not only does Calypso Studios create the hottest, most trendsetting jewelry, but they do it with Mother Earth in mind. By collaborating with several environmental organizations, they are able to help keep landfills and water ways free of plastic and paper bags.

Calypso Studios sent me their beautiful Purple Sea Jewels Necklace. This hand strung, multi-strand necklace features polishes shells, resin, faux pearls and metal accents.

I admit, I was nervous about the fact of not having the option to choose my own necklace. Like most women, I am very particular when it comes to my taste in jewelry. Calypso Studios has such a unique selection of jewelry; they offer affordable jewelry and they definitely have something to suit any woman’s taste. I couldn't be more happy with the necklace that was chosen for me.

This long necklace includes a lobster claw clasp which is my favorite type of closure because it is easy to fasten and it is the most secure. There are four strands total which include a combination of deep purple, pastel purple, purplish-pink beads, shells and pearls with shiny silver accents. Purple is a color that compliments nearly every skin tone and the same rings true for me. The Purple Sea Jewels Necklace is such an eye-catcher. I have worn this necklace several times and each time, I am stopped by strangers offering compliments and asking where they can buy one. If purple is not your color of choice, here are a few more of my favorite pieces:
