My name is Charlene Labadie I am the developer of, and artist behind Royal Calypso. I am a self taught creative who is most comfortable while making anything with my hands. Royal Calypso is where I offer my wears to the world. I started sewing at an early age mimicking my aunts while they sewed uniforms for school children.

While attending school I always gravitated to creative arts classes. Painting, sculpting, making a mess, taking things apart, sewing, dancing, and being creative were my past times.
Growing up with Sickle cell disease I found peace and a purpose will creating my art. Creating is the best way I found to stay mentally active through the down times while I was ill. I gave the things I made to my family and friends until my mother encouraged me to start selling them, but self doubt held me back for some time. Due to some financial issues I was having I started selling at craft fairs and did ok when I decided to step it up in 2009 and that is when Royal Calypso was born.
I take time to notice the mundane and can find inspiration in the simple, minuet, and over looked. I see every piece of jewelry, custom pillow, candle holder, vase, sculpture, personal and household accessory, and artwork as art that you can wear and/or display in your home. I take much pride and pleasure in being used by God to present beauty to the world in the pieces I offer.


Thank you for supporting Royal Calypso and all the beauty that I bring to the world.

Additional Policies and FAQs
What is the best way to prevent my sterling silver jewelry from tarnishing?

To keep your sterling silver jewelry from tarnishing, you should store it in an airtight container such as a zip lock bag, wooden, stone or plastic box somewhere other than your bathroom. You should also avoid spraying it with perfume or rubbing it with lotion. Jewelry should be the last thing you put on in the morning and the first thing you take off at night. Please note that rubber and latex could burn silver so please separate them.

Sterling silver tarnishes from the presence of Hydrogen Sulfide in a material that silver comes in contact with. Sulfur containing material generally cause silver to tarnish. It is also relating to the climate – high humidity results in silver tarnishing much faster.
