Born in one of Rio's most dangerous slums, Nilson was determined to give his daughter opportunities he didn't have. He began handcrafting jewelry and handbags from leftover scraps at a local workshop. Nilson now brings his rich organic designs to the larger world, and is able to create a sustainable living for himself and his family. This natural crystal adorned leather purse is one of a kind, sculpted by hand of brass and plated with gleaming chrome exclusively for Uno Alla Volta. Nilson carefully hand-forges the metal around the unique shape of each amethyst, citrine and clear quartz crystal; from the heart and hands of the artisan. 7 inches by 8 inches with 26 inch adjustable strap.

Born in one of Rio de Janeiro’s most dangerous slums, Nilson dropped out of school at age 15 to help support his family. Apprenticed to a brass artisan, he soon discovered his own creative talents. When a Connecticut couple discovered him and helped him create a sustainable business, Uno Alla Volta's customers immediately fell in love. Together, we are enabling Nilson to transform the life of his family, and many of his friends and neighbors as well.
