Spotlight on “Calypso” (Review)




Calypso Studios debuted in January 2007 with a line of jewelry and accessories created Calypso tote model Trendfrom 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. It is our hope that this art will bring much pleasure to who wear it. Calypso Studios jewelry indeed serves to commemorate life’s happy moments.**



I was sent two great items to review from Calypso. The first was an adorable S.H.O.P Tote and the second was a gorgeous pair of amber dangle earrings. calypso trend tote

I can not imagine a more versatile, portable tote then the “Trend” S.H.O.P Tote. The S.H.O.P. tote stands for Start Helping Our Planet. It is estimated that:

  • Each year, an estimated 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide
  • According to the EPA, over 380 billion bags are used in the USA every year, which is more than 1200 per resident and it takes about 12 million barrels of oil to make this many bags.
  • Over 46,000 pieces of plastic are floating in our oceans worldwide
  • Each reusable bag you use has the potential to eliminate an average of 1000 bags over its lifetime.**

Calypso Studios launched the S.H.O.P. Totes ™  January 1, 2009.  The company collaborated calypso earringswith American artists, such as Lori Siebert, Emma Hand,  Robin Roderick, Tina Higgins, and Andrea Tachiera to provide beautiful art on the totes.  The totes are a fashionable way to Start Helping Our Planet by using reusable bags.  The spacious bags are 17” x 19” when opened and easily roll up into a 2” x 3” size.  Three bags are conveniently stored in an 8” x 6” wristlet carrying case.** I found the S.H.O.P Tote to be a wonderful and easy accessory to throw into my purse or backpack.

I was also sent a pair of beautiful Amber Harvest Sundance Earrings. They are a gorgeous yellow/gold hue of amber accented with a delicate ruby colored bead. I get so many compliments on these earrings. Each pair is unique and the are only $8.00!! A perfect compliment to your summer wardrobe. Calypso  carries a wide assortment of glass, clay and shell jewelry. Each piece uniquely beautiful and wonderfully priced.
