  • the story

Gold-Dipped

Adding brilliant luster to delicate lace, this lovely creation harkens back to the art of lace-making, made popular in the Americas towards the end of the 15th century. Tulianna and Alejandra Garces and their team of artisans in Colombia sew together real pieces of lace until they've achieved the desired shape. The design is then dipped in wax to seal each intricate curve, then dipped in upcycled copper and shimmering 24K gold. A final hand-brushing allows each delicate detail to show through, offering elegant appeal. Handmade in Colombia.

Tulianna and Alejandra Garces

Tulianna Garces immigrated to the US from Columbia in 1985 after her first daughter, Alejandra was born, though she 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 witnessed first hand the power and inspiration that can come from giving individuals the opportunity to express themselves.

This was something that was not only desperately needed in Colombia, but also an initiative that would require a collaborative relationship with local artisans. Each piece Tulianna and Alejandra design is an impassioned labor of love that has passed through many hands, dedicated to the idea that all citizens of the world deserve to live safely and at peace.

Visit the blog to learn more about how Tulianna and Alejandra work with Colombian artisans to create their stunning dipped lace designs.

    I bought this as a gift for a very lovely and elegant person, and she was very enthusiastic about it and it looked incredible on her. I was so happy when the necklace arrived, it was even more beautiful in person. I am seriously thinking about purchasing one for myself.

            I was expecting something a little less large and more delicate. It looked like an upside down Christmas tree

                A very striking and beautifully designed necklace. The necklace is bold but at the same time delicate in its design. It is a stand alone as well as a layering piece.
                I wear it both ways ,and have had many compliments. I find no negative comments re: this piece. I am 100% satisfied!
