LUA ART – THE TRAVELLING SHOP

My name is Ula, I’m an artist and traveller. The name of my store comes from changing letters order in my actual name into Lua, which means the Moon in Portuguese language.

The idea for selling my handmade jewelry was born out of the desire to combine my passion for handcrafting and nature with travels, the freedom to move and live in any part of the World.

I come from Warsaw, Poland, but since I started to live just from what my hands and mind create, I live in travel. I take my work with me to different parts of the world, I collect materials from the places I live in and I take inspiration from the nature that surrounds me.

From 2020 I’m based half of the time in Chapada Diamantina in Brazil and the other half in Europe. 

INSPIRATIONS

In my Macrame pieces I use earthy colors, organic shapes and irregular patterns. My inspiration change together with my surroundings, so the new collections I release are often connected with the changing seasons or my travels.

My work for me is a way to admire the beauty of Nature, which I believe is the greatest artist. 

In my shop you can find some ‘One of a kind’ pieces as well as repeatable designs. No matter if it’s unique or repeatable, I create every single piece with great care and love.

ONE WOMAN’S SHOP

 I run Lua Art shop alone and independently. Every single step from designing and creating jewels, taking and editing pictures, making descriptions  of each product and uploading them here, talking with the customers, preparing packages until finally sending them to you, as well as developing the website, managing social media, finding and selecting the materials, from time to time attending festivals and fairs… is done personally by me.

TECHNIQUE AND MATERIALS

Macrame knotting technique is one of the oldest crafts, dating back to 500 B.C, where it was used by Persians and Syrians for making their own clothes. In the 13th century the art was taken to Spain with the Moorish conquerors, then it spread to Italy and through Europe. Macrame jewelry became popular in America within the “hippie movements”, starting in the early 70’s. 

In macrame there’s no need to use any tools, no needles, no crochet, no glue. Just hands, some patience and imagination.

For my macrame jewelry I use high quality waxed strings, which are very durable and resistant, but also light and comfortable to wear. I use only natural and carefully selected gemstones and minerals. 

PACKING AND SHIPPING

When I pack and send my jewelry I give big attentions to details, trying to make the new owner feel really special. It will arrive to you in a gift box, with handwritten note inside. I secure the package to make sure it will arrive to you safely, but at the same time trying to make it as eco-friendly as possible.
