Kate Puck Jewelry

 As promised, I'd like to introduce you to a fabulous jewelry designer I've had the pleasure of dealing and chatting with over some time now.  She is not only a wonderful person, but she has the most beautiful, fresh and colorful (and affordable) jewelry, perfect for Lilly Pulitzer wearing weather!  She is just fabulous and I know you will love her, and her jewelry, too!
Kate Puck is a Charleston, SC jewelry designer who finds inspiration in the beauty of the Lowcountry barrier islands.  She is also a big fan of Lilly Pulitzer and often designs her necklaces to complement the Lilly look (ummmm, gee, no wonder I like her!)

Kate is a third generation jewelry artist designing with sterling silver, semi-precious stones, sand dollar fossils and pearls. Her signature pieces are the Kiawah Starfish Collection (my favorite), Isle of Pearls, Beachwalker Charms and Sand Dollar Fossil Necklaces. Kate’s designs are sold in galleries in downtown Charleston, Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, Daniel Island and select Florida resorts.  You can visit Kate on facebook at: for current updates and special promotions.  Stay tuned here for a special promotion just for SLPS readers!

My personal favorite collection is the Kiawah Starfish.  I love the white pearl combined with the star, it's fresh, light, not overbearing at all and matches just about any color (eh hmmm, pink and green) you choose.  Plus it's shiny.  Name me one female that doesn't like shiny!  (The earrings also come in green.)
 For a more formal, yet still very light and fresh spring look, I adore the Green With Envy necklace.  I love the stone mixed with the clear necklace, it screams classy, but not stuffy.  I can see some of my Kentucky friends heading off to Keeneland or the Kentucky Derby pairing this with a spring dress and hat.
Coral has such a unique color and it pops against any skin color, fair, tan or dark.  As you know, the latest fashion rule is to NOT match shoes and dress colors.  So, can't you visualize this gorgeous necklace with a fresh white sundress with matching coral colored heeled sandals?  Yes, I think maybe I do!
Can't forget the ears.  I know what all you Lilly lovers are thinking, perfect for Lilly's signature green patterns!  Again, fresh with a pop of color without having an overbearing feel.  I tend to stay away from long, dangly large earrings.  It's just not my personality, but that doesn't mean I can't have fun and fresh color.  These are definitely on my wish list!
Last but not least, the wrist.  For some reason, I don't wear bracelets in the fall or winter, but spring and summer have my wrists adorned with all types of pearls, mostly pink freshwater (if you can imagine that I'd wear anything but pink).  But now, I will be adding this Green Peas bracelet to my jewelry collection.  Not to be redundant, but once again, fresh and light for casual shorts, church going or even more formal as a wedding or the horse races.
So, aren't you just in love with Kate Puck now?  Yes?  Well you are in luck!  Kate is offering my readers $20.00 off a $100.00 purchase.  Just enter the code "preppy" at checkout!  That's nearly a free pair of earrings!  Don't delay, you must add these gorgeous pieces to your closet.  You won't be surprised to see me in future posts wearing Kate Puck
