It is my pleasure to introduce you to Sylca Designs. This company that creates the most beautiful Eco-Chic handcrafted jewelry is one I have had my eye on for quite some time. Being an interior designer myself, I have a passion for creating spaces that incorporate both natural items and modern design. Sylca Designs is all about that by using recycled wood, shells, and natural dyes to come up with incredible, wearable art.
Let’s just be totally honest, I sought out this unique jewelry business because I was so impressed by the designs they have to offer. It was like they got in my head and made pieces that I only dreamed about. I literally squealed with glee when they messaged back to me saying they would like to collaborate with me. The other qualities that I so enjoy is that is venture is owned by a mother and daughter. Sylvia and Camila are the masterminds behind this artistic jewelry line. They have also made a commitment to help make a difference in the world by partnering with Kiva, an organization that empowers Filipino women by providing microloans. With every purchase through Sylca Designs, they donate a percentage of the sale to Kiva.
With all of these amazing attributes to this company, I was excited to be a small part of what they are doing. When I was asked to select a piece to highlight here on the blog, I was faced with almost impossible task of picking just one item because I honestly would like to own every single piece. I finally decided on the Cream and Grey Handcrafted Beaded Necklace. It has that ethnic vibe that I always gravitate towards and it was incredibly easy to style with so many items in my closet. The multi shaped beads appealed to my senses with a combination of discs and long cylindrical wood beads in a muted gray, cream, and one statement orange. It also boasts one shell bead that gives a little texture and shimmer.
Summer has decided to descend upon California this week in the dead of winter and has the temperatures going up to the upper 80’s and lower 90’s, so I am hoping these looks will inspire you for the upcoming Spring season. For a casual, yet pulled together outfit, I placed my Sylca Designs necklace over a coral and navy floral blouse. A chambray skirt and olive cargo jacket act as neutrals in this colorful ensemble.
For this particular look I cinched in the flowy blouse with a skinny braided belt and because this necklace comes on a cord with an adjustable bead, I brought up the length a few inches as to not have it compete with the belt. I love how you can wear the orange bead on either the left or right side. It’s lightweight nature makes this piece easy to wear all day long. Even with the patterned top, this necklace is still the star of the show.

Remember how I mentioned how you can make this necklace any length you want? Well, I have been wearing this necklace non-stop, so I snapped a few pics in the morning before I start my day to show you how that looks.
Here it is being worn at it’s shortest in combination with a casual outfit for the weekend. Even with jeans and a lilac knit top, this necklace feels right at home on my neck.
And at it’s longest, I paired it with a floral maxi skirt and oversized coral top.
All three of these outfits are different, and this necklace just lends itself perfectly to them. Now when I spoke to Camila, she was generous and gave me a discount code for my readers for a purchase at Sylca Designs. Use code DFMC10 for 10% off through 2/17.
