The hottest neon looks from our polyvore contest…

We were so impressed with all of the looks generated in our Neon Summer Brights contest… but the nature of a contest is that somebody has to be on top, and these are the big winners!
Untitled #327
It was almost a given that paula of  born-to-be-brave woud win our contest after being named a “top set” by polyvore editors, but it really is all down to the styling. From the celestial skirt to the neon-retro sunnies, the whole look is fierce and clearly the winner! born-to-be-brave won her choice of of our neon bracelet in mixed metals – and she chose pink! We’ll be winging her prize off to Rome, not that we’re jealous she lives there or anything…😉
Colorful Confidence
Our coveted 2nd place slot goes to Kayla of  kaylamae03. We just loved this st, from the choice of clothes to the overall layout and color palette. It’s a shining example of how to wear neon and keep it classy and chic.
Brighten up! Style Kyler's NEW NEON Collection
Our 3rd place standout is a look that’s pure FUN. It’s so summery and simple – and we loved her use of complementary colors to highlight our jewels without having to match. Congrats to  on her win!
Keep an eye out for more eco jewelry contests, and keep showing us your Kyler style!
Until next time, xo Kyler

3 Looks We Love – Coachella’s Best

This month our friends at Polyvore hosted a contest in celebration of Coachella, asking participants to rock one piece two ways for the hot days and cooler nights, and including our jewelry in their selection of featured items! The result was a tidal wave of super cute Coachella-ready sets with your favorite modern jeweler! Here are three that left us totally impressed. Hope you all had fun!

Kyler is InStyle’s MOST WANTED

As if getting tons of features in InStyle Magazine wasn’t already enough for our Anode Collar Necklace (worn by Jessica Alba), it’s now rated by InStyle readers as “the jewelry you most want to add to your collection”!

Our very own customer Angie G. quotes “It reminds me of a cool Frank Lloyd Wright creation.”

Thanks Angie! We’re always looking to create modern celebrity jewelry you’ll love! xo

Green Your Music Festival this Season

Combine our most recent Earth Day Polyvore contest and Polyvore’s Coachella Style contest (our favorite looks soon to come!) and we were reminded of an important environmental opportunity, now that Festival Season is here.

Green Your Music Festival

This Green Music Festival article from Milkshake brought our attention to a greater organization, A Greener Festival. AGF is a not-for-profit company committed to helping music and arts events and festivals around the world adopt environmentally efficient practices, and they’ve probably been around at the concerts and festivals you frequent, quietly helping event coordinators green your music environment.

Every year, they offer the AGF Award for the greenest event, both big and small, so do your best to be in-the-know of all the recycling and environmental efficiency programs happening at the events you attend in order to help out!

Here are some other ways you can green your music festival experience:
1. Skip the plastic bottle stands and bring a reusable water bottle. Events are getting very good at offering watering stations for you to refill.
2. Bring a backpack to avoid all the plastic bags from buying merchandise.
3. Utilize events shuttle systems and public transportation (and skip the parking lot gridlock when the show’s over)
4. Finger food: Opt for foods that require fewer utensils, plates, and napkins
5. Pick up when you can. Not everyone is going to behave like a green hero, so dispose of wandering bottles and cans as you walk by recycling bins

Of course you can always green your style with Kyler eco modern jewelry!
Finally, revisit the A Greener Festival website to see which event won for 2012!
