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.
Kuolmi jewelry is handmade by a local artist Marjeta Hribar. She picks, cuts and designs every single piece by hand. Her message has an ecological note: wear it, don’t burn it! The designer is well known for designing a crown of Miss Slovenia 2018 and 2019, coworking with Alpina company and promoting slovenian heritage in a new creative way.
Coal jewelry KUOLMi is made from stainless steel and hard coal, both displaying the hidden charm of “black gold”. Each item is unique and hand-made thanks to the material itself. Wearing KUOLMi, you wear a piece of rock that has already existed 20 million years ago!
