The Mother/Daughter Duo Behind Sylca Designs

The Mother/Daughter Duo Behind Sylca Designs

After spending many years as a sales representative in the fashion industry, Sylvia decided she wanted to start her own line of jewelry. She reached out to her daughter Camila, who at the time was attending Drexel University for marketing, to see if she would be interested in joining her on an adventure of a lifetime. The pair’s appreciation for nature and art made this a very exciting venture for the mother-daughter team, and certainly one that they will never forget.


We believe in transforming lives and empowering all women to connect to their inner confidence and feel beautiful. Not only will you look great, but you can feel great when you wear one of our handcrafted items because with every product you purchase, you will help us give back to women in need. We are proud to be partnering with Kiva.


 What is Kiva?

Kiva Microfunds (commonly known by its domain name, Kiva.Org) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization[2] that allows people to lend money via the Internet to low-income entrepreneurs and students in over 80 countries. Kiva’s mission is “to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty.”

Sylca Designs is making a contribution by donating a portion of online sales to the Kiva organization. We are true believers in the quote “Give a man a fish and you’ve fed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you’ve fed him for a lifetime.” We believe in giving back to women in the Philippines because this is where our jewelry is made. We are very happy to be able to give back to the women in The Philippines by helping them succeed in their entrepreneurial ventures. Every dollar given — even if paid back — will stay within the organization to loan again or donate. We encourage you to follow our progress by visiting our team website here.

Helping Children In Need

In addition to donating part of our proceeds to Kiva, we also love to help Children in need. One of the organizations we work with is STUDENT OF THE LIGHT foundation, which serves displaced children from the civil war in Colombia.
