Howlite is a reoccurring stone in Syster P jewelry collections.
One of the popular necklaces with the stone is Dripping Necklace and this beautiful jewelry comes with a variety of stones.
Traditions tell us that the stone has several meanings and people use it for different purposes
In this post I would like to tell you what the story is and the quality of the properties.
Howlite, a borate mineral, was discovered near Windsor, Nova Scotia in 1868 by Henry How, a canadian chemist, geologist, and mineralogist.
According to howlite traditions it has several properties (beside being a beautiful stone), for instance spiritually, it´s a stone for awareness.
Many say that the stone prepares you to receive wisdom from the higher self and the divine and it´s also used for meditation.
The stone is also used to calm upset states of mind and emotions. It is said to decrease stress, anxiety, selfishness and brings calm and relaxation to the user.
I use howlite to increase my creativity and to expand my self-expression which is important in my job.
In some part of the world, it is used as a healing crystal for pain, insomnia, leg cramps, anxiety disorders and stress-related illnesses.
Well, see you in a few days with a new crystal meaning!
Spring signs are everywhere, finally! In Sweden the winter is long and dark, so when my favorite season, spring arrives it´s pure happiness. I believe a lot of people feels the same and to celebrate this lovely feeling I´m sharing some spring news at the shop:)
This symbol is sanskrit, and is called Aum. In hinduism, aum refers to the entire universe, the truth and the soul. And it stands for energy. ”Aum” comes as earrings and bracelet, and above you see ”Sparkle Bracelet Aum”. A lovely piece of jewelry that brings joy when carried.
The power of sisters. It´s a bond to be nourished, and this bracelet is a perfect gift to your sister, your friend or someone you care for. Sister Power Bracelet comes in a variety of colors, and you´ll find the bracelets above here.
This chic bracelet is called ”Mono Bangle” and has set crystal and monogram pendant with the text BAM.
It´s a favorite and comes in silver and gold plated and the size is adjustable. A perfect gift for you self, or someone you care for.
We wish you a wonderful weekend, with a lot of joy and happiness!
One of the highlights in the capital of Scandinavia is Stockholm Fashion Week. I just love how the city turns into a jungle of fashion bloggers, editors, actors and photographers running in between shows and events.
As a fashion editor, I get the chance to visit fashion shows and in some cases even have a moment with the designers backstage to discuss collections, thoughts, philosophy and things in between.
For me, to have a moment with a person who is dedicated to create pieces of wearable art is truly inspiring and I always bring the new insight with me to put it in my box of ”Box of inspiration”.
The Fashion Weeks schedule was expected hectic, however, running in between the well-styled fashion shows and runway is a part of the big picture. Fashion Week is not what it is without the fast-and-curios atmosphere, the good stress vibes and not to forget, the meetings!
So I have A LOT of favorites among the designers and collection, and since it would be nearly impossible to list them all here, I´ve handpicked one to present for each day!
Day 1: Whyred Women
The collection ”A scene in Between” sets out to wash away the sartorial treasures of UK indie youth scenery.
Whyred is not only a label of fashion. It´s main core is a brand dedicated to lifestyle, art, music and tailoring. The charasteric if WHYRED design is wearable garments with a modern touch.
The collections and garments are inspired by everyday things such as various forms and classic forms; t-shirts, chinos and parka.
Since I LOVE Syster P jewellery I can´t help myself accessorize outfits with Syster P pieces.
For this collection I would definitely go for a simple and chic. And since I adore contrasts in fashion, I would choose accessoars that are female since Whyred has a lot of masculine vibes in their collections.

Day 2 Valerie
A few years ago when I bought my first Valerie dress and jacket, I almost didn´t dare to wear them. The new pieces became quickly my ”precious dress”. But what good comes from design that are not worn? None… right?
Valerie Aflalo, creative designer of the brand has a long experience of high fashion: Her father was the one to introduce Yves Saint Laurent in Scandinavia in the early 70s.
After returning from a trainee position with Renato Nucci in Paris, Valerie returned to Stockholm to start her own brand.
Today, Valerie is well known established Swedish fashion brand. Her way to design and create unique looks combining Swedish design and French luxury and her passion o finding characteristic European made fabrics: embroiled tulle, jacquards, lace and silk crepes makes Valerie a favorite on and off the runways.
Since Valeries design has a lot of details, a would once again go for something simple to accessorize. Beloved Bracelet (silver & gold) from Syster P is a favorite that goes with different styles and outfits. Another bracelet that I really love is ”Aruba”. This lovely one comes in a variety of colors:)

Day 3 Beckmans College of Design
Founded in 1939, The Beckmans College of Design, the college is a small art college for advertising and fashion. The third-year Fashion students mark the middle of their final-year studies with collaboration project with seven of Sweden´s most well-know fashion brands: Carin Wester, Cheap Monday, Filippa K, Hope, House of Dagmar, Ida Sjöstedt and Whyred. Fourteen students have interpreted the fashion brands and created new visionary collections. Students in Visual Communication have created the communication concept, including web and fashion films.
I just love the idea of having projects including established brands and design students. I believe the creations that are born from these kind of collaborations are something extra, something new and something different.
Designers: Josephine Bergqvist, Amanda Blom, Filippa Borenius, Olle Daunfeldt, Siah Javaheri, Livia Schück, Isabelle Larsson Knobel, Jenny Larsson, Victor Lind, Klara Modigh, Petra Norden, Emma Röstlund, Anna Scholz, Johanna Welinder.

Long time no see! Our only excuse is that we´ve been busy designing upcoming Syster P collections. Anyway, a lot have happened lately, among this we´ve added a new team member to our crew.
Let us introduce Merih, our digital PR-girl who is going to update you with the latest news and happenings from Syster P. Merih loves fashion, food and shopping! Like many she has a passion for sharing inspiration, and at our blog she will be showing you captures from Syster P and you´ll also get to see her life as a fashion editor for online fashion magazine Getstyled.
Welcome to Syster P Merih!
Finally the fall has arrived, and we get to update our outfit to suit the darker times and colder mornings. Although I can miss the sunlight and the warm weather, the crisp mornings, the clear air and the dark evenings with lit candles are just lovely. I also like bringing out my fall outfit, maybe updating it a bit, and using all kinds of accessories to make it feel right for me. A warm, wool scarf can make any old coat look alive, and there is nothing to give my face confidence as a bold pair of earrings. Do you agree? Please check my inspo pics below for ideas on how to enhance you own outfit!
September has started with sunshine and heavy rains, chilly mornings and lovely, warm afternoons. Life is like that, and I feel grateful for all the mixed feelings and ups and downs of everyday life. With the fall follows the will to update your wardrobe. Where do you get your inspiration? We are shipping new jewelry to all the stores, and really enjoying seeing all the new models before they move out the door. We have also sent out all the warm, cosy, beautiful scarves, to make the summer outfits last a little longer. Join our September inspiration, with earlier favorites and newcomers combined!
The summer is slowly coming to an end, and bringing the start of an exciting fall. For us, this means a new season is starting in the beginning of August. We get to unpack all the new products, and show the collections at the different fairs and here in our showroom. It is an exciting time, and we welcome both ”old” and existing customers. We just came back from FORMEX, the largest design fair in Sweden, and 4 wonderful days together with lots of people from all over Sweden and the other Nordic countries. Being at a fair is different each time, but a few things are in common – the nervous preparations, and the will to make everything look perfect at the stand. We are very proud of our stand at Formex this time, and what do you think, doesn’t it look awesome? Before Formex we were at the CIFF in Copenhagen, and this week it is Gave&Interiør in Oslo together with our agent Close2Home. Then we conclude the fair tour with Precious jewelry fair here in Stockholm next week. I will get back later and show you the most popular new jewelry and scarves. Until then all new items can be found in the Syster P Webshop, see you there!
The summer is a time of lazy days, and on the same time in great expectation and preparation for the fall to come. I don’t know about you, but I can certainly feel the change of mindset now, and winding up for going back to work. We are doing everything to get ready, and preparations for the new season are intense. We have already received the first deliveries of new jewelry and the scarves are on their way. It is such a wonderful time, opening all the boxes with news, showing to stores, going to fairs and meeting all the customers in our showroom. The new lookbook has been printed, and the images are just lovely. Times are hectic at the office, and the first fair starts already next week, the CIFF in Copenhagen. We look forward to seeing everybody there, and promise to make the very most of our booth. August 5th-7th at the Bella Center, see you!
Below a selection of a late summer favourite, the Aruba bracelet available now in many different stones. Super easy to wear, and to combine with other bracelets for the right summer look.
