Inspired by the forms and flowers of Brazil's lush tropical plants, Nilson hand-sculpts each collar necklace in recycled brass before plating in glistening 14k gold and hand-setting with the perfect white howlite gems to create each one-of-a-kind necklace. Born in one of Rio's most dangerous slums, Nilson dropped out of school at age 15 to help support his family. He first found work in a leather-goods workshop and later apprenticed with a brass artisan. Determined to give his daughter opportunities he didn't have, Nilson began handcrafting jewelry and handbags from leftover scraps at the workshop. He now brings his rich, organic designs to the larger world, and is able to create a sustainable living for himself and many of his townspeople. Each howlite and gold collar necklace is adjustable with a 4.25 inch long spray.

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.
