Tropik Beatnik

Playful & Bold Filipino Clay Jewelry Your Inner Child Would Wear

More than just a jewelry brand, Tropik Beatnik is a celebration of Philippine culture, creativity and 🌈 color 🌸.  Founded by Pinay artist and designer Carla Cruz, Tropik Beatnik features unapologetically quirky designs – drawing inspiration from childhood, nature, Philippine history, and Filipino culture. 

When Tropik Beatnik first launched in 2017, Carla handmade every piece herself. They’ve since expanded to employ 4 mother artisans from the Gawad Kalinga Community of Sitio Pajo in Quezon City and, together with the Cambio & Co. community, we hope to employ more.

Being a maker at heart and lover of all things eclectic, Carla doesn’t limit her collections to just handmade polymer clay. You’ll also see Philippine pearls, upcycled fabrics, and even salvaged beads from past collections or other brands into her designs. 

When you wear your Tropik Beatnik pieces, we hope you feel unapologetically Pinay, proud, and free to be exactly who you were meant to be.
