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.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

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.
