Allana Gonçalves

Allana has a Geography background, and while working on her Monograph, she learned of a course called "Goldsmith" and chose to dive deep into the subject.

She fell in love with jewelry and wanted to study more, so she enrolled in advanced courses in goldsmithing, jewelry 3D modeling, and one-year jewelry design at IED SP-Brazil, which included a module in Florence, Italy.

She completed all of these courses while pursuing her Geography degree and working as an Educational Robotics teacher.While attending her advanced course, she created her brand (Altaluc Jóias), which has served as her creative, development, and learning laboratory.

She's been a designer for a year and is in charge of quality control, manufacturing, and style at our factory, where  she had the opportunity to co-create the new Kora Kora collection.
