Hearts of Gold

Bring a sweetly romantic statement to your ensemble with Tulianna and Alejandra Garces's heart-shaped earrings that combine the timeless qualities of lace and gold. Through an intricate process that can take 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 collection. Handmade in Colombia.

“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.
