Yula and Giancarlo worked on the idea together. Each color represents an element—red for the fire of the lava from volcanos; green for forests and jungles; and blue for water.
All of the structure is organic and relates to nature shapes—directly influenced by the butterfly and the peacock feather. Costa Rica is blessed with thousands of species of flowers, butterflies and birds that dont exist anywhere else.
Costa Rica has the largest open nature in the world that is protected and undeveloped. They have a wide variety of weather and different kinds of land (jungle, sea, fresh water, mountains) that allow all this to exist.
Yula says she thinks the inspiration for the jewelry is more interesting than the jewelry itself. I find what inspires her to be fascinating, but not more interesting than her jewelry.
