Story

Forged in the heart of Nairobi by our artisan partner, Sylvester, our debut collection of brass jewelry has been made from 100% upcycled brass—discarded taps, padlocks and old coins that would have otherwise ended up in the junkyard.

Sustainability is always our priority at Obakki, so we love the concept of taking something forgotten and turning it into something beautiful and new. 

Details
  • MATERIALS: 100% Upcycled brass , Silver Plating, 18K Gold Plating
  • ORIGIN: Kenya
Product Care

Brass is known for its bright lustre and golden gleam; however, over time brass can begin to appear dull and therefore needs to be properly cared for to maintain its look. To clean your brass jewelry, simply take a small amount of jewelry cleaner (tomato ketchup or toothpaste also work like magic!) and gently rub onto the surface with a soft cloth. Rinse with warm water and dry jewelry thoroughly.

The Blacksmith from Nairobi

Sylvester

Sylvester grew up fascinated by the idea of working with metal, and at a young age decided to learn the trade as a way to carry his father’s legacy forward. Now, many years later as a father of five children himself, Sylvester’s work is truly anchored in tradition. Blacksmithing is more than just his livelihood, it’s his defining passion.

Working from a small shop in the heart of Nairobi, he speaks of his goal to one day open a center where he can teach underprivileged young people the art of blacksmithing "If I can teach other kids they will be empowered to use jewelry to create a life for themselves".
