The ALMA Collection
This collection of statement jewellery pieces represents artisanal expertise at its finest.
After carefully hand-picking real flowers, leaves and seeds from wild corners of Colombia, Ana Catalina and Juan Camilo, the artists behind this one-of-a-kind artwork, take them through a meticulous drying process for up to one month and a half.
Once the natural elements are dried, the artists take them through a delicate process called "electro-formation", which consists in fusing copper onto the natural element by passing a low voltage charge through the materials. This process allows the artists to have a thicker and more resistant material to work with, and yet highlight every single intricate detail of the flower or leaf. The unique pieces of nature are then dipped into 24-karat gold or silver to be plated using an artisanal mold-free jewellery technique.
This meticulous creation process allows the jewel to preserve and highlight the unique attributes of the selected flowers, petals and leaves, and to immortalise their beauty and uniqueness forever into an exceptional piece of wearable art.
