Jonzing for Taqua jewelry this Summer!

I'm in a total jewelry state of mind this season.  Typically for Summer, I keep the jewelry to a minimum… big hoop earrings, maybe a bangle or two.  But this time around is different – I want bold, statement-y jewelry and I want lots of it!  Whether you opt for a simple sundress or a vintage kaftan, jewelry that packs a punch will take your look to the next level!

The taqua nut from South American rain forests is a fantastic, sustainable & chic material that lots of savvy jewelry designers… and here are some of my favorite pieces! 

Chicago-based jewelry designer, Geraldine Rincon, first introduced me Taqua and her pieces (like the Safari Blue necklace above) are still some of the chicest around. Just picture this with a maxi dress and flat sandals – instant style!
And as I said before, I am typically a hoop earrings junkie… but this season I'm craving a more exotic look for my ears. 
  
 Ok so, they're still hoop-ish (you know… old dogs/new tricks), but these gorgeous, colorful earrings by Green Diva (left) are perfectly vibrant and Summer-y.  On the right, are a stunning pair of Tagua slice earrings by Vermont-based design effort, Mui ChicThey're edgy and luxe-looking (and available in 3 colors!).
 

 
 

Also by Mui Chic are these super gorge statement rings of naturally-dyed Taqua.  What a way to finish an outfit, right?

 

 




And don't forget the wrists!  Stack these bracelets, or wear alone… they're instant chic with any ensemble from a tank top and cut offs to your favorite Summer dress.  From Left: Tawa by Mui Chic, Shilsol Bay by Green Diva and Kandi by Mui Chic

    get put in place? I’m assuming using a blog like yours would cost you a pretty penny?

    Thank you for posting when you’ve got the means, Guess I’ll just bookmark this internet site.

  • Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  • Hi, Neat post. There may be an issue along with your web site in internet explorer, might check this?
    IE still will be the marketplace chief and a great portion of people will leave out your great writing because of this problem.

  • The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  • I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  • You cant make an omelette without breaking eggs.

  • whoah this blog is magnificent i really like studying your posts. Keep up the great work! You know, many people are hunting around for this info, you can aid them greatly.

  • Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  • Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any help is very much appreciated.

  • Along with every little thing which seems to be developing inside this specific subject matter, many of your viewpoints are generally fairly exciting. On the other hand, I am sorry, but I do not give credence to your whole idea, all be it exhilarating none the less. It seems to everyone that your commentary are generally not entirely rationalized and in actuality you are generally your self not even entirely certain of your argument. In any case I did take pleasure in reading it.

  • You’ve the best internet sites

  • Hiya! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Have you any idea steps
    to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone.
    I’m looking for a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
    In case you have any recommendations, please share.
    Appreciate it!

  • Arms down, Apple’s application retail store wins via a mile. It truly is a enormous conclusion of all types of applications vs a as a substitute unhappy choice of a handful for Zune. Microsoft consists of Options, primarily in just the realm of games, but I am not certain I might need to have in the direction of bet upon the future if this element is crucial to by yourself. The iPod is a considerably greater choice in that circumstance.

  • You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be
    actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your
    next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  • I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
