Gifting Karma or Wishing on a Star

By Maribel Alvarez

Karma has been a big word in my vocabulary and a constant in my mind since my recent trip to Laos and Bhutan. So I can’t tell you how thrilled I was to find the perfect gifts for the dozen girlfriends in my life when I popped in to my favorite one-stop-Christmas-Shop destination. Inspired by the authentic Buddhist prayer beads, Sequin’s Color Karma Collection features semi-precious colored stones that represent qualities and moods we all experience or strive for, such as warding off bad vibes and keeping up the positive energy.

Whereas I would normally spend hours choosing which friend would prefer a classic Chanel-like necklace versus a Grecian style earring, this time all that was required was choosing the right color! Over a dozen to choose from!  Bracelets start at $48 for a group of four and necklaces at $98.

For those who have faith in their lucky stars, check out the Star Maps Collection endorsed by Susan Miller of Astrology Zone.  Another beautiful holiday gift with a personal touch and special meaning, the ‘The Star Maps Collection illustrates the twelve astrological signs with beautifully detailed interpretations of constellations and zodiac symbols. Each is 22k antique gold or silver-dipped and cast from an original Sequin illustration.  Each sign offers a beautifully diversified selection of necklaces, bracelets and charms starting as low as $38 and up to $98.
