Slovenia used to be a wild, wet forest. It was a magical world full of wildlife and no one ever stepped inside. Wild jungle ... trees bathed in the sun and wild animals ran around. New trees grew and old ones rested. In this magical world, trees did not die - they turned into a stone called coal. Today, the artist digs it up and lets these 20 million year old trees see the sunlight again. This is the story of stones that travel through the time and want to do it with you! Kuolmi is the local name for coal. Slovenia's natural coal will carry the memory of Slovenia wherever you go.
KUOLMi jewelry is handmade by local artist Marjeta Hribar. She manually selects, cuts and shapes each piece of coal. Her message has an ecological note: "Wear it, don’t burn it!" The designer is known for her work on designing the Miss Slovenia crown in year 2018 and 2019, as well as collaborating with shoe company Alpina, and most of all promoting Slovenian heritage in a new creative way.
