Home Sweet Home

Excitement, madness, party, dancing, enjoyment, costumes, colors, mud, soca monarch, reggae, celebration, culture, j’ouvert….. all equal to a Caribbean Carnival. Boy, do I miss home!

There is nothing like growing up in the Caribbean. Sweetbread, roti, portugal, white-sand beaches, Sunday lunch, mangos and coconut water is just a taste of the lifesytle. Such memories! I am my culture and my culture is me. It inspires my decisions in my day to day life and in my business. I use my culture to represent the colors I choose, the beads I buy and the styles I make.

This is carnival time! Trinidad Carnival passed 4 weeks ago and VI Carnival is approaching and followed by other island celebrations. So, with that said… I’m celebrating in my own way. Monthly sale on Caribbean inspired jewels. Low price, no shipping costs. Check us out and celebrate HOME!!


Let’s talk colors!

One of my responses to previous blog suggested I use brighter colors like yellows, oranges and reds in my collections. Does the colors you chose for your accesories, shoes or wardrobe determine your personality?

I came across a color personality test. My wife and I took the test but we don’t believe it was accurate yet interesting none the less. My objective, current situation, stress sources and etc. was way off. However, it could be different for others I say take the test at least for enjoyment.

I came across another color personality webpage (What is your Color Personality?) which defines personality by color. My persoanlity color is yellow (at least its the best fit) although my favorite color is blue but my wardrobe has mostly gray and black pieces.

With that said, does one have anything to do with the other. Is it possible we are making purchases according to our personalities? Just something to think about. Let me here your responses.
