Gold and New

Composed of organic resins and gold flake, this eye-catching orb offers a compelling contrast of materials. Artisans in Colombia create the smoky resin from upcycled wood remnants salvaged from lumber yards. Swirling within the glossy sphere is a storm of gold leaf flakes, giving the piece a compelling textural quality and dramatic dimensionality. 24k gold-plated bronze chain. Designed by mother-daughter team Tulianna and Alejandra Garces. Handmade by artisans 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.
