A New Golden Age

Tulianna and Alejandra Garces' beautiful earrings were inspired by original pre-Colombian-era wearable masterpieces on permanent exhibit at El Museo del Oro (The Gold Museum) in Bogota, Colombia. Using molds of earrings created thousands of years ago, the mother-and-daughter team use the lost-wax technique to handcast their versions in bronze and then coat the metal in a lustrous layer of sterling silver or 24 karat gold. Handmade in Colombia.

Vermont

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.
