Good as Gold

Crafted from plant-based resin and embedded with 24kt gold leaf flakes, this heart pendant reinterprets the romantic statement piece. The eye-catching flecks of gold glitter within the red resin as a playful symbol of the treasure that hearts can hold. A co-product of the lumber industry, the resin used is a renewable resource. Handmade by Tulianna and Alejandra Garces 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.

            The necklace is very beautiful, but arrived impossibly tangled. It took me 30 minutes to carefully undo all of the knots in the delicate chain and the clasp is so small it is next to impossible to do yourself without patience and a magnifying mirror. All things considered I would still recommend to a friend.
