“Using materials from her native Colombia, Lula designs all of her collection in which many are one of a kind.
The look she creates is 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 materials such as Tagua nut which is a natural biodegradable, oval shaped nut from a palm tree, often called vegetable ivory, or citrus rind which is another natural product that allows her to create aromatic beautiful necklaces and bracelets.
Using Bombona, Açai and Camajuro seeds that come from the Amazon rain forest, she is able to create vibrant, geometric and light weight items that are wearable pieces of art”.
Tagua is a palm tree nut considered the vegetable Ivory. It grows in pods named "cabezas" and are well known for its hard but smooth texture. It dries itself, doesn't have oil that create allergic reactions.
Citrus rinds are collected from a local juice bar. They are thoroughly peeled, washed and dye with natural dyes. On winter they are baked, on summer they are sun dried.
Lima beans are rare bean with black or red spots that grow in South America. It is harvested every three years. They are carefully baked and treated with natural preservatives.
Bombonas are medium size round palm tree nuts that grow in the Amazon rainforest in South America. Their features are similar to the Tagua nuts.
Açai seeds come from a tall Palm tree that grows in flooded areas in South Brazil, commonly known for its fruit: The Açai berry. Their small size make them perfect for beading.
Jocaranda seed pods is the fruit of a tree that looks like a castanet, they grow in pairs covering the seeds and in a middle row. They harden itself.
