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.

“A large part of [our] mission is to encourage these artisans to maintain their cultural traditions while also being able to support their families.”

It’s been several decades since mother-daughter duo Tulianna and Alejandra Garces emigrated from Colombia. However, the Vermont-based jewelry makers stay connected to their homeland via their collection of dipped-lace jewelry, which is crafted in the South American country by artisans trained by the Garces women. “A large part of [our] mission is to encourage these artisans to maintain their cultural traditions while also being able to support their families,” Tulianna says.

While the Garces’ dipped-lace styles draw inspiration from pre-Columbian jewelry traditions, Tulianna and Alejandra have recently branched out into locally made pieces as well, which they handcraft in their studio. The designs feature organic materials sourced in Vermont, continuing to ground their work in a sense of place–and home.

I don't think these earings will work for the person I bought them for, which means I must shop again. But not at Uncommon goods.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Castillo Gold Dipped Lace Earrings:

    Beautiful earrings. Bit thicker and more solid than I expected, but good quality. I put them on as soon as I got them and ended up wearing them all evening even though I was just at home. They were really comfortable! They're quite large and while I'm happy with the size, I'd suggest doublechecking the dimensions so that you are aware of the size before you order. My only con is that even though they are unique and good quality, they're still a bit overpriced.

    I have been thinking about these for as long as they've been offered on this site, and I'm glad I finally got them. Can't wait to wear them out!

            These are the most beautiful earrings I have seen in a long time! I bought them for my best friend as an early wedding gift and she actually ended up wearing them on her wedding day! She looked beautiful and I decided to buy myself a matching pair and her the matching necklace. A great gift for that person in your life who has amazing taste and a love for handmade jewelry!
