A Heart of Gold

Lace and luster combine to elegant effect in this delicate heart necklace, designed by Tulianna and Alejandra Garces. Ornate pieces of lace are cut and hand sewn by Colombian artisans and then dipped in wax to seal the pattern before a final dip in copper and bright 24k gold. Once the process is complete, the artisans hand brush the excess metal from each ornate curve in order to preserve the subtle details. The result is a beautifully romantic one-of-a kind piece of wearable art.

Produced through a fair trade organization, this handmade jewelry provides stable income for economically struggling or displaced communities of Colombian artisans, most of whom are women and heads of households.

“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.

    This is a really pretty necklace that looks more expensive than it is.

    Service and delivery comments:

    I paid for expedited shipping to make sure I received it on time for a birthday gift. It arrived quickly and was packaged safely, but the necklace itself was in a plastic bag inside very plain box and the care instructions said not to store it in plastic.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Precious Dipped Lace Heart Necklace:

    Bought this as a gift for my girlfriend and she loved it! I read the dimensions but the heart is a bit bigger than I thought it would be and may look a bit better on a longer chain. Besides that, the piece is just so pretty and delicate and makes a wonderful gift for yourself or someone you love.

      I love unique fair trade jewely and this is a stunner. Unfortunately, the chain was tangled upon receipt and small for the size of pendant. Easy to remedy especially since some people may appteciate the floating effect!

      I love my 2016 Valentine's Day present to myself. There is on one negative: when necklace arrived, there was a knot in the chain. I had to take it to a jewelry repair shop to get knot out. This could have been due to shipping.
