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.
