A Golden Opportunity

Make a rare and romantic statement with Tulianna and Alejandra Garces' earrings that combine the timeless qualities of lace and gold. In a painstaking process taking several days, Colombian artisans transform lace into stunning, finely-detailed jewelry. The process is entirely done by hand: pieces of lace are cut and sewn, dipped in wax to seal and reinforce them, then in a layer of copper, and finally in 24k gold. The piece is then brushed by hand, clearing every void of the lace from excess metal to preserve its subtle detail. Finally, a lacquer is brushed onto each piece to protect its delicate beauty. The resulting pieces are glittering tributes to the traditional art of lacemaking, and gorgeous statements to add to your accessory collection.

Tulianna and Alejandra Garces

After immigrating to the US from Colombia in 1985, Tulianna Garces never forgot her home and the devastation that more than fifty years of civil war can have on an innocent population. Working with local communities in New England, she began teaching children from low income families everything from theater to printmaking. It was here that she was inspired to create collaborative pieces that have passed through many hands, dedicated to the idea that all citizens of the world deserve to live safely and at peace.
