A year ago, while rummaging in a flea market, Spanish designer living in Italy, Sara Olmos found this drawer full of wooden letterpress. For a long time Olmos didn’t know what to do with them… “I only knew I loved them.”

Olmos then decided to paint with bright colors one type block and see what happened and liked what she saw and thought it would be nice as a necklace.
