A Nose for History

Wear a golden tribute to South American culture with this necklace inspired by a Pre-Columbian design for a nose ornament from the collection of El Museo del Oro (The Gold Museum) in Bogota, Colombia. Tulianna and Alejandra Garces' pendant is a graceful interpretation of ancient indigenous jewelry that was made between 1500 BCE and 1600 CE in solid gold. That stunning cultural artifact is honored in this contemporary design created through the same lost wax method and with molds that were used thousands of years ago. The unique design is hand cast in bronze, and then gilded in lustrous 24k gold or shimmering sterling silver. Handmade in Colombia.

Tulianna and Alejandra Garces



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.
