Marjeta Hribar - KUOLMi

This collection tells the history of coal like a fairy tale. Once upon a time, Slovenia was a wild, wet forest. It was a magical world filled with wildlife. No man ever stepped inside. 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 lets these 20-million-year-old trees see the sunlight again. The brand name KUOLMi is taken from KUOLM 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 an internationally known local artist Marjeta Hribar.
