Sandra is a young adult woman whose passion for unique and beautiful accessories took her to initiate a project and back-then a hobby: create her own jewelry. She began playing with the possibilities by choosing colors, fabrics, materials and other elements. As she made them, her coworkers praised her abilities to construct these beautiful pieces and the person who instruct her how to do so, congratulated her talent. Soon, she needed to give a name to what she was beginning to construct, so she decided to call it La gloria de Dios, God’s glory in English, inspired in the uniqueness of the products and the wholesome majestic experience she believes in, God’s own glory manifested in the final result.
Ten years ago, she began and she hasn’t stopped learning, as today teaches other women alambrismo (wire wrapped), an ancestral technique used commonly to create art in jewelry. She also includes different cultures, as she buys from local artisans as well, from the Wayuu community of women.
Overall, La gloria de Dios is a legacy, because Sandra involves her family in the process, father, daughter and son, all join to the creations, and is a way to honor God’s given word.
