Calypso Studios Review
Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.
I love to discover online shops where I can find unique, interesting products. Calypso Studios is one of those wonderful online treasures that features a wide selection of products for “fashion, faith & just for fun” jewelry. I had a great time browsing the product line which includes so many wonderful gift ideas including boutique bags, comforting clay crosses, hair accessories, jewelry, comforting clay gifts and accessories. The designers at Calypso Studios use natural elements from the earth such as clay, shell and glass to create beautiful pieces of jewelry and accessories that are modern and distinctive.
One of the signature designs at Calypso Studios are the Comforting Clay Crosses. You can choose from Hand Held Crosses ($20), Cross Clips, Pocket Crosses and Cross Bookmarks. To be honest, I wasn’t sure at first what I would do with a hand held cross but I quickly realized that this would be a well- loved treasure. The first thing that I noticed is how beautifully designed the cross is as it is handcrafted by the artists in the studio. It is made of all natural clay and has a unique design and colors. The perfect gift idea for christenings, baptisms, at a time of loss, graduations and baby showers, these comforting crosses are so unique. I have used my own Comforting Clay Cross in so many ways especially since I am a nervous fiddler who is always in motion. I clutch my cross while in prayer, hold and squeeze it when I am very stressed and nervous and let my children hold it when I am reading the bible aloud. Recently, my daughter had a severe injury to her face and needed emergency plastic surgery. She and I were both feeling overwhelmed while waiting for surgery at the hospital and I noticed that I had my Cross Clip on my key chain. I took it off and let my daughter hold on to it while we prayed together…..she and I both discussed later that it brought us great comfort and helped calm us down.
I also LOVE the beautiful jewelry that is vibrant and feminine making it the perfect accessory. I was surprised at how attractively priced this collection is with gorgeous necklaces available for only $20. I wear my necklace with casual and special occasion outfits for the most versatile accessory. My husband thinks it is very pretty too commenting that it looked “Bohemian Chic” (his interpretation).
I confess that he snickered when I mentioned that I would be wearing a hip hugger bag when we went on a recent day excursion, imagining I suppose, that it would be one of “those” unflattering styles. He was so pleasantly surprised when I wore the Santa Fe Hip-Hugger Bag ($15) which is a modern, trendy bag worn around the hip that is so useful when on the go. I like that it is adjustable and that I don’t have to lug along a big bag because I can now put my keys, cell phone, some cash and a credit card in my bag and I am ready to go! Calypso Studios has designed something we didn’t think was possible……a hip-hugger bag that is functional and fabulous!
You are invited to visit Calypso Studios to browse the huge selection of lovely products that are quality-made, attractively priced and beautiful. These would make great gift ideas and I am sure you will find lots of nice items for yourself too!
