Calypso Studios Wrap Bracelet Review and Giveaway!



Being a jewelry maker myself I love finding beautiful, unique pieces to add to my collection.  The only problem is I'm very picky, which is the reason I went into jewelry making in the first place.  A few months ago I came across Calypso Studios and fell in love with their wrap bracelets so when they recently posted that they were looking for bloggers to review for them, I couldn't pass up the offer!

A little more info. on Calypso Studios
According to their website, "Calypso Studios debuted in 2007 with a line of jewelry and accessories created from Earth's natural elements: clay, shell and glass.  The new line was immediately embraced and praised for it's unique designs and mediums."
"Calypso Studios' designs are on-trend, spanning the ages in both technique and those choosing these distinctive and exclusive designs. More than just a conversation piece, Calypso Studios jewelry symbolizes good taste for an independent spirit."  
"It is our hope that this art will bring much pleasure to those who wear it. Calypso Studios jewelry indeed serves to commemorate life’s happy moments."
Calypso Studios features a wide variety of beautiful jewelry and accessories that they separate into collections.  Some of these collections include the Carnival Collection, Clay Collection, Sundance Collection and so many more.  These collections include beautiful pieces of jewelry that are more like works of art. Below are a few examples. They recently started featuring a new product on their site called "Comfort Crosses" which are worth checking out.  They are pretty, handcrafted clay that you are able to cradle in your hand for comfort.  They come in all kinds of neat colors and designs.  As well as beautiful tote bags to make your shopping trips a little more eco-friendly!


Amethyst Stone Stretchy Ring $7.50
Pink Elizabeth Necklace $20.00
Don't Worry, Be Happy 4 Bead Key Chain $10
Pink Ribbon Comfort Cross $20
 As you can see, Calypso Studios has something for every style!

My Review
The wonderful people over at Calypso Studios allowed me to pick out a wrap bracelet for review so I chose the lovely Pink/Green Floral Clay beaded Wrap Bracelet, pictured below.  This is a 24in. wrappable bracelet made from beautiful clay beads and waxed linen cording.  I have been wearing this beauty everywhere because it really seems to fit with quite a few outfits I wear!  It's very easy to put on and looks beautiful.  I have small wrists so it's a bit large for me and I couldn't tell in the pictures on the site if the bracelets are supposed to twist when they go on but that may be just because it is a little too big for me.  I have gotten many compliments on my bracelet and have plans to wear it again and again because I really love the way it looks with so many different outfits.  The Pink/Green Floral Clay Beaded Wrap Bracelet retails for $20 on their website.  
Pros: The bracelet is beautiful and very well made!  This bracelet, unlike some I have purchased in the past, is sturdy and I don't have to worry about wrapping it around my wrist and it breaking and the beads flying everywhere.  Remember you're going to pay for quality, not always but most of the time.  
Cons: Their jewelry is a bit expensive but again, you pay for quality in this case.  This jewelry is high quality jewelry and won't break on you when you go to wrap the bracelet around your wrist or go to slip the necklace on your neck.  

Pink/Green Floral Clay Beaded Bracelet $20
Where can you find these fabulous pieces of wearable art?
