The Ulloa from the Nomadic collection contains the minerals and gemstones listed below. Components are personally sourced, carefully chosen, collaborating with fair trade vendors worldwide, many of them from the smallest of tribes using traditional methods.
Ulloa Name Meaning. Galician: habitational name from either of two places in Galicia named Ulloa (in A Coruña and Lugo provinces).
The Nomadic Necklace is an 18" long necklace meant to be worn about the clavicle. Bohemian meets warrior appeal.
All of the gemstones used are considered to be “lucky stones” for a Capricorn:
• Chrysophrase Green faceted, polished rounds
• Amethyst stone large specimen in shades of lavender, AAA grade from the far East
• African Turquoise antique rounds in varying dark tones
• Rosewood, large "prayer" beads from the Philippines
• Silk Tassel handmade in Marrakech in Lavender with a silver lurex thread wrap
• African Bauxite beads, eco-friendly mined in Ghana in a natural burnt umber
• Sterling silver micro beads and toggle closure
• Authenticated with a BINC, circular, hand-stamped sterling silver paillette.
This necklace is carefully crafted with the large, ornamental, incongruent-shaped pieces juxtaposed against the small, geometric color-filled ones, creating a beautiful balance as it’s placed about your décolletage. It contains incredibly vibrant gems: some shiny and polished and others classic, weathered and rutty from time. All bathed in rich jeweled tones colored from the earth. I've incorporated the seductively hued stones with beads of the finest variety.
The beads are carefully chosen for their antiquity and craftsmanship of their makers. Please note minor flaws or imperfections may appear within these handcrafted beads or inclusions within the natural, raw gems. It's one aspect of their inherent beauty.
My pieces are designed from my inspiration of everyday life, art, for this piece the artist Frida Kahlo, fashion, music, architecture, nature, people and world events. I make my pieces with astute attention to detail, love and healing intentions.
Precious stone designs are accompanied by an identifying list containing the scientific and meta-physical ‘healing qualities’ contained within all of the gems in your piece.
