Handmade coal jewelry KUOLMi

Once upon the time, Slovenia was a wild, wet forest. It was a magical world filled with wildlife and no man ever stepped inside. A wild jungle… trees were bathing in the sun and wild animals were running around. New trees grew and old ones lay to rest. In this magical world, trees didn’t die – they transformed into a stone named coal. Nowadays, the artist digs it out and let these 20 million-year-old trees see the sunlight again. This is a story about stones that travel through time and want to do it with you! Kuolmi is a local name for coal. The natural coal of Slovenia will share a memory of Slovenia no matter where you go.
