“Using materials from her native Colombia, Lula personally designs all of her collection in which many are one of a kind pieces.
The look she creates is a totally new concept for the Fashion industry due to distinctive shapes and forms that nature bestows upon her materials. With her keen eye for design, Lula takes these exotic materials and turns them into unrivaled pieces of jewelry. For example such materials used are a natural biodegradable Tagua nut which is an oval shaped nut from a palm tree, often called vegetable ivory, or citrus rind which is another natural product and allows her to create aromatic beautiful necklaces and bracelets. Using Bombona, Acai and Camajuro seeds that come from the Amazon rain forest, she is able to create modern, geometric items that are wearable pieces of art”.
