18kt Gold Bolivian Pebble on Pink Alpaca Wool Necklace

$1,865

18kt Gold sourced from a small artisanal mine in Bolivia. Each pebble is handmade and utterly unique. These Gold Pebbles have become a signature yet exclusive style within our Bolivian collection, as we only make them once every three years. They are particularly tactile and strung on rainbow shades of Alpaca. Smooth and warm to the touch, these little amulets are from a precious part of the world.

Pippa has worked with Javier, a talented goldsmith in La Paz, since 2009. He casts stones collected from riverbeds to create these tactile 18kt golden pebbles. We are excited and proud to have you carry a little piece of Bolivia through our golden pebbles.

Meet The Maker

Javier

An Aymara Indian from Bolivia, Javier is the son of a Gold miner who began working in the mines of Tipuwani himself, at a very young age. He later moved onto goldsmithing and now has a tiny workshop in Miraflores near the coca market. From this little space, he makes beautiful creations for the indigenous Chola ladies of La Paz who invest heavily in the precious metal.

His wife, working as a domestic worker in Madrid, has been gone for many years. So he has had to raise their sons alone.

Javier enjoys creating beautiful, yet simple, earthy, natural forms deeply inspired by the pre-Colombian Goldwork of his ancestors and I love working with him.
