"Symbolic jewelry for rebirth and transformation"
We've all lived through challenging chapters in life. As human beings, we like to know about hard sets of circumstances turning out well. A good ending. A ride into the sunset. We want to know everything is going to be okay. Lotus flowers embody the story of the triumphant. They're the phoenix of the flower world. From the depths of muck and mire they rise each day and bloom in all their exotic beauty. Wear Lotus as a reminder of rebirth, hard-won personal transformation, and especially... of hope.

Encompassing evocative design and modern vision, Alucik is a line of wearable art created by internationally-recognizing Venezuelan light artist, Claudia Bueno. While experimenting in 2007 with digital and aerospace engineering technologies to use in large-scale installation art, Claudia discovered that her intricate designs could be produced with incredible accuracy on stainless-steel sheets. What started as a fun side project to make jewelry for family and friends, evolved over seven years, while living on four continents, to eventually become a Made in USA product based in her husband's native state of California. Their small studio is nestled in a five-acre amphitheater of giant boulders adjacent to Joshua Tree National Park. Claudia begins by developing a series of watercolors and drawings inspired by a lifetime of international exploration. Pushing the limits of raw materials and technology, her designs are given form. Alucik jewelry is then hand-assembled by a young team of local artists, musicians and rock climbers. Claudia refers to Alucik as 'concept jewelry,' each limited-edition design reflecting her artistic vision in a unique blend of nature and culture.
