About the Artist

LULA CASTILLO

“Born and  raised in Colombia, Lula  made her home in the Hamptons upon her arrival  to United States nearly 16 years ago.

She has a degree in Industrial Design and always had a interest for organic products and sustainable designs. During her college years she had access to the  surrounding local materials such as nuts, seeds, beans and natural fibers. She  learned how to process and work with some of these materials. In conjunction with this, she  developed a  passion  for jewelry  and wearable objects.

The results are beautiful and fashionable  Eco-Friendly collection of necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings that are vibrant, fun and lightweight wearable pieces of art”.
