About the jewelry

“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”.
