Passage to India

Colorful scraps of floral sari fabric seem to float inside this one-of-a-kind bracelet designed by Tulianna and Alejandra Garces. Colombian artisans take tiny swatches of upcycled flower-patterned saris and preserve them in a clear, octagonal bangle made of wood-derived eco-resin, a completely renewable alternative to synthetic or petroleum-based materials. Stylish with a story, the snips pop with color in the light, and against your white shirt sleeve. Layer it with more subtle pieces for a sophisticated boho look. Handmade in Colombia.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

“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.
