Team in Training Raffle: BECK Dutch Caribbean Earrings

BECKLOGOI can always tell when I miss home, because those are the days I plan my outfits around my beautiful handmade BECK earrings. BECK Dutch Caribbean is a jewelry line founded by my friend Becky and inspired by our home island, Curaçao.

BECK’s jewelry provides a unique representation of island lifestyle. BECK is currently available on islands like Aruba, St Maarten, Santorini, Mykonos, Cooper Island, and of course Curaçao. Becky tries to give her clients a variety of options, from dazzling Swarovski crystals to understated semiprecious stones, ensuring a sense of uniqueness and individuality- a crucial concept in small island​ scenarios.

Becky2“I love being able to represent Curaçao through my passion of jewelry design. Through BECK I aim to create a ​Dutch​ ​Caribbean lifestyle ​​that​ ​can be transported and simulated anywhere in the world, ​ ​that extends from island life to city lights.”

Becky definitely does that for me, transporting me back to our beautiful slice of paradise every time I wear my gorgeous earrings. I am lucky enough to own two pairs: a light and a dark blue pair. BECK earrings come in many colors, but those ocean colors always tug at my heart.

In case you missed it, I’m running the Marine Corps Marathon in October as part of Team in Training, after claiming 8 years ago that I would never run a marathon again. Never say never!

Becky has been awesome enough to donate two pairs of earrings to my Team in Training auction. One lucky raffle winner will be able to win their very own “Take Me To The Ocean” blue pair of BECK earrings. And another lucky person can win a gorgeous pair of pinkish BECKs at the auction (both pictured below).
