The Luxury Of Leather

- Friday, January 31, 2014

From our to our trendy Studded Leather Bangles to our classic Leatherettes, many of our best jewelry designs are crafted from genuine leather. We believe in creating our jewelry from the finest materials possible, and authentic leather gives off an aura of luxury and prestige. There are quite a few advantages of using real leather over faux leather for jewelry:

- There is nothing like the smell and feel of real leather.

- Because no two animals are handled exactly the same, each piece of authentic leather has its own unique characteristics.

- Real leather becomes softer and more attractive over time, which makes it more comfortable as well.

- Genuine leather is extremely durable. It is soft, yet strong.
Leather is easy to take care of when it’s maintained properly.

If you have yet to wear one of our pieces of jewelry made from genuine leather, check out our website’s leather section. With such a wide variety ranging from Boho style jewelry to edgy urban accessories, there’s something to suit every style.

What Inspires You?

- Tuesday, January 7, 2014

Inspiration is all around us, that much is certain. But what inspires one may not inspire another. A writer may be inspired by overhearing a conversation, while a graphic designer might get inspired by the way tall blades of grass look. Each of us views the world through a different set of eyes, so different things will trigger those places in our minds that encourage us to create, move, take a chance or do whatever it is that we need to do.

Many of our boho style jewelry was inspired by natural elements. The appropriately named Montauk Pebble Necklace, recently featured in Nylon magazine, was inspired by the gorgeous oasis of Montauk, our Roman Glass Slice Necklace was inspired by the beautiful beaches of Mexico.

And while the ocean is perfect inspiration for all things beautiful, it’s not just the scenery that inspires our designer to create. Since Tahitian pearls are known for providing protection and good luck when you’re in the water, Pame Designs offers lots of beach jewelry that features them, such as the Triple Tahitian Pearl Wrap. The Oblong Pave Nugget, one of our most popular pieces. was inspired by some natural stones we thought would look better with a little sparkle.

For some, it’s not art that needs creating or jewelry that needs designing. Some people may need inspiration to do something they’ve resolved to do this year, like finding a new job or getting into shape. They may look to traditional places for inspiration, such as others’ success stories or motivational quotes. Or, something more serendipitous may may get inspired by a magazine cover, take a yoga class, fall in love with the practice and get into shape in the process.

The beautiful thing about inspiration is that it can guide you to living your best life, doing amazing things and having meaningful experiences. But to be inspired, you’ve got to know how to find inspiration. A few good ways are:

  • Try new things. Step outside of your comfort zone once in awhile. Take a dance class, try new recipes or start to learn a new language.
  • Take a camera out for a walk and photograph everything that looks beautiful to you.
  • Read books, blogs and articles about people who have overcome obstacles and achieved greatness.
  • Watch inspirational speeches, like TED talks.
  • Have coffee with your best friends and ask them what they’re most grateful for.
  • Listen to music that moves you.
  • Take a solo vacation, even if it’s just for a weekend.
  • Reflect on everything you’ve accomplished in life and think about how you got there.
  • Buy some new fashion magazines and pay attention to the colors and patterns you like the most.
  • Read about different periods of history and different cultures.

So… what inspires you?

Winter Resort Style: Ten Ski Resort Must-Haves

- Thursday, November 7, 2013

There’s no doubt about it: summer is an amazing season. But those of us who love to ski and snowboard eagerly anticipate winter as well. You might think you’ll be too bundled up at the ski resort to look fashionable, but the fact is, you can look just as stylish on your winter getaway as you do on your summer escapes. Pack these ten essential pieces into your bag and you’ll be ready to hit the town along with the slopes.

1. Boots that are cute and practical. Invest in a pair you can wear outdoors during the day and wear with a long sweater and a pair of leggings at night. There are plenty of boots out there that are durable enough for snow and stylish enough to wear to dinner. Finding a versatile pair you love will save you space to pack more essentials.

2. Pretty long underwear. It exists, and a cute printed thermal will keep you cozy all day and look darling peeking out from underneath your v-neck sweater at night.

3. Our Studded Zig Zag Cuff. Pop it on with your evening ensemble and watch it enhance the entire outfit. This chic jewelry is versatile, stylish and both trendy and timeless. Who says boho style jewelry is limited to summertime?

4. Several sweaters. The sweater is to a ski resort what the sundress is to a beach resort. You’ll want one for every evening, but you’ll also love having options if you take a long lunch break or hit the town for some shopping. Take a few long pullovers, chunky sweaters and cardigans to wear with your leggings, jeans and skinnies.

5. Stylish, warm accessories that will complement your ski clothes and your street clothes. Think hats, gloves, scarves and ear muffs in basic black, tan or trendy cobalt blue.

6. A Leatherette wrap. Since our Leatherette can be worn three ways, it already makes a perfect pick for a vacation. But this versatile, soft, stylish accessory adds instant sophistication to jeans and a sweater, making it a great choice for a ski resort. Wear your Leatherette as a necklace and the Zig Zag Cuff on your wrist when you go out for the evening and you won’t need any more jewelry.

7. Polarized sunglasses. They look great on the slopes and they’ll give your sweater and jeans look a bit of attitude. Winter sunshine can be surprisingly harsh, so pack a polarized pair.

8. A fleece jacket. Save the heavy, waterproof coat for the slopes and wear a cozy but chic fleece layer when you’re out and about.

9. Fuzzy socks for when you head to bed. This goes without saying!

10. Board games or other activities. You’ll want to relax by the fireplace after a day spent skiing or snowboarding, and making new friends is always in style.

A Chic Way To Do Stars For Fourth of July

- Tuesday, July 2, 2013

jewelry designsThere is certainly no shortage of kitschy Fourth of July clothing and accessories to wear! From stars-and-stripes sweaters to sparkly headbands, light-up pins and barrettes with little streamers attached. They make for fun photo ops and look perfect at the town square, but you likely won’t be wearing any of it for a chic night on the town or a beach getaway. (At least, we hope not!)

Here at Pame, we prefer to leave the more colorful fare behind and opt for chic jewelry designs to celebrate our patriotic spirit long after the actual holiday has ended. And in the summer, we need just the right piece to go with everything from a boho beach getaway or shopping at the Farmers’ market to a dressy dinner out on the town.

One of our favorites is our Star Charm Necklace, which is the perfect slice of sparkle and a stylish nod to the Fourth of July holiday or celebrating your own superstardom! It’s such a versatile piece. The Star Charm is an effortless accent to wear on its own or layered with one of your other favorite Pame designs. It’s also perfect to pair with pieces you have in your own jewelry collection. The gold-plated Star Charm has a tiny accent of a diamond Swavorski crystal and is set on a skinny gold plated chain that is adjustable from 16-18'.    

And even if you’re not the patriotic sort, think of it as a reminder to always reach for the stars!

Give Old Bracelets Chic Boho Style

- Thursday, June 20, 2013

Chic JewelryOne of the new chic boho style bracelets from Pame designs is actually a new twist on the cutout cuff. This one has studded leather woven through the metal. It gives a little attitude to an already eye-catching piece of jewelry. Adding fabric or other materials to an existing bracelet to provide extra texture is a great way to make it more boho. Here’s one idea for how to do this at home – no sewing skills required!

Fabric Wrapped Bangle

You will need the following:

1. Two plain metal bangles

Fairly narrow ones will work best (less than half an inch thick). However, you can use one thick and one thin if you’d like to create an asymmetrical set. They should be bracelets that fit easily over your hand and that are fairly loose on your wrist. 

2. A long, thin accent scarf in a lightweight material

Choose the kind you might tie around a sunhat or wear to hold back your hair. One with tasseled knots or fringe on the ends is perfect. You may want to pick one in a vibrant color like aqua or yellow for summer. A fabric with metallic threads woven through it works particularly well.

Steps for Wrapping the Bracelets:

1. Thread the scarf through the first bracelet so the bangle is at the mid-point of the scarf

2. Bring the two ends of the scarf together, letting the bangle hang down like a pendant on a necklace

3. Spin the bangle to twist the scarf into a long rope – the tighter the better (just like tightening the string on a yo-yo)

4. Wrap the twisted scarf around and through the bracelet over and over until you get all the way around to the starting point and the whole bangle is covered

5. Thread the ends of the scarf under the original knot to hold them in place

6. Add the second bangle by tying it snugly to the first bracelet with the ends of the scarf

7. Twist the ends of the scarf into a rope again

8. Wrap the second bangle just like the first

9. Thread the tails under and tie a final knot to keep the scarf in place

10. Let the very ends of the scarf hang free so that the fringe is visible

That’s it! You can experiment with different ways to wrap the bracelets and add ribbons, leather thongs, feathers, or other materials to add even more chic boho style.

Resort Jewelry for Beach Destinations - Part 4

- Tuesday, June 18, 2013

It’s back to the beach again for this fourth installment covering the hottest beach locations in 2013. This time, we fly away to the lovely Vieques Island in Puerto Rico. It’s the most exotic place an American can go these days without a passport. But you will need some basic photo ID. Otherwise, you might just forget who you are as you while away the time sipping cocktails on the sand. The W Retreat & Spa has all the usual amenities you’d expect at a luxury hotel. But what will really tempt your imagination is a tourist attraction that is unique to Vieques – a body of water full of tiny, living jewels.

If it’s a dark night with little moonlight, you can board a pontoon and enjoy the luminescent waters of the “biobay” where emerald green dinoflagellates dance in the water. Once upon a time, you could dive in and let these sparks of light envelop you in an almost otherworldly experience. These days, swimmers are discouraged from taking a dip in the biobay because their presence can disrupt the delicate balance of the ecosystem. So, you’ll have to content yourself with adorning your body in other ways. We think the blue-green shimmer of the tiny stones in the labradorite wrap is the perfect resort jewelry for this locale.

Resort Jewelry for Beach Destinations - Part 3

- Wednesday, June 12, 2013

A serene shoreline just outside Panama City is the next destination on our tour of the hottest beach resort locations for 2013. This is the home of the Westin Playa Bonita Panama (a hotel named for the beautiful beach). The Pacific Ocean invites you to take a swim on one side while the lush rainforest tells you to take a hike on the other.

At this narrowest point in Central America, you’ll find a surprisingly wide variety of amenities and sights to enjoy. The hotel itself has the obligatory spa as well as plenty of kid-friendly activities courtesy of the Westin Kids Club. This line of resorts likes to boast about all the attention to little details that make a big difference, from the Heavenly Bed to the scent of white tea infusing the air.

In the same way, your resort jewelry should be the little detail that makes your wardrobe for this vacation memorable. Natural beauty and wildlife feature prominently at this location – including bird and whale watching. So we recommend wildlife inspired accessories like the Pame Designs Baroque Pearl Freshwater Lariat. The leather and pearl combo is as sweet as a breath of fresh mountain air salted by a sea breeze. Plus, you can wear it as either a necklace or a wrapped bracelet to take your look from night to day.

Resort Jewelry for Beach Destinations - Part 2

- Tuesday, June 4, 2013

Next up on our tour of the hottest beach resort locations for 2013 is the Ritz Carlton in Cancun, Mexico. On this vacation, it’s all about indulging your gourmand side. Enjoy fine dining al fresco in a Casita by the beach or surround yourself with elegance in the Mediterranean “Fantino” restaurant. For lighter fare, savor the best seafood stylings Japan and Latin America have to offer at the Sushi and Ceviche bar.

The location boasts a “Viking Culinary Center” where you can eat a five star meal that is cooked while you watch and wait. Or, you can tie on an apron and learn to whip up a few signature Mexican/Italian inspired dishes yourself. If you are a very brave soul, you can even enter an Extreme Chef contest. The resort’s website doesn’t say if they have a bad-tempered British chef on staff to curse and yell at you while you compete. But we’re sure it’s a fun time anyway!

You may find yourself reaching for a swimsuit cover-up to hide the few extra pounds you pack on when you stay at this posh hotel. But you can still show off your wrists with one of Pame Design’s signature cutout cuffs. The crushed blue quartz will remind you of the deep blue of the ocean. The snug fit of this resort jewelry will keep it out of the way while you’re working the sauté station.

Get The Look: Oscar de la Renta Resort Jewelry Makes a Statement

- Friday, May 31, 2013

Resort was once considered the “off” season in the fashion industry, but today all the top designers are putting together extravagant shows to fill up the slow time between the launch of their fall and spring collections. Rather than haute couture that’s hard for the average woman to see herself wearing, these pieces are intended to be highly wearable. That goes for the accessories just as much as the garments we see on the models. Vogue and the rest of the fashion world are all agog this month over the latest resort fashion collection from Oscar de la Renta. The resort jewelry in the collection got a lot of notice for being showy and chunky – like vintage costume jewelry with some extra punch. For example, one model wears a thick gold cuff bracelet with colorful stones. It reminds us of the newest arrivals in our collection that you can find right here.

Resort Jewelry for the Top 5 Beach Destinations in 2013

- Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Are you planning a trip to the ocean shore this summer? Will you be hitting one of the hottest beach resort locations for 2013? If you’re getting away to one of the top five destinations on Boca do Lobo’s list, you’ll need to pack the right resort jewelry. We’ve matched up the perfect item from the Pame Designs collection for each resort just for you. This week, we take you down to the white sandy beaches of Florida to tour the first destination.

St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort, Miami Beach

St. Regis is well known for its five star luxury hotels, and the long-awaited resort at Bal Harbour is simply the newest pearl on the chain. It has already earned recognition as the 2013 SPG Member “best beach resort”. The location boasts quite a poolside experience. You can reserve a cabana to provide shade as you enjoy the Tranquility pool or one of two infinity pools. The website boasts that guests can even access butler service poolside. That conjures a funny image of a dignified servant in long tails trying to avoid getting splashed as he hands you an o-shibori to wipe your brow. There are also reflexology and massage “samplers” to whet your appetite for a full body treatment after a day of exercise at the resort’s Technogym® fitness center.

However, this resort is best known for the inimitable Remède Spa with amenities that will make even the most seasoned travel gasp in delight, and then let out that breath in a long sigh of relaxation. In fact, this resort is billed as one gigantic “spa without walls”, bringing guests unrivaled comfort in every room. This spa is a modern take on a very old theme. The Greeks had their “laconica” and the Japanese enjoyed the “onsen”.  The first large-scale spa of note was actually a “thermae” constructed by Emperor Agrippa in Rome circa 25 BC. You’ll be enjoying a cashmere robe rather than a silk toga during your vacation, but you can give a nod to spa history with a Roman glass slice necklace.
