Calypte Collection jewelry is handcrafted and designed by Carol in her sunny southern California studio just outside of Los Angeles. Carol is a wildlife biologist and her designs are inspirations taken from the vibrant colors of nature, from the gorgeous hues of blooming flowers, to the iridescent colors of hummingbird feathers.
The Calypte hummingbird is the symbol of Calypte Collection jewelry. Hummingbirds represent the vibrancy, beauty and serenity experienced when connecting with the natural world. Like hummingbirds, we can celebrate the vibrant beauty that nature has to offer, savor each moment and embrace life.
Carol believes in connecting women with the outdoors, being socially responsible and strives to incorporate eco-conscious practices in her business and life. Whenever possible Calypte designs use eco-friendly, naturally dyed and recycled materials.
