Story

This collection of jewelry is all created from cast-off objects. Random brass pieces, found on the streets of Nairobi. Items that would otherwise sit in landfills for thousands of years. Our amazing artisan partners take this discarded material and turn it into sophisticated, sustainable jewelry.

Imagine. Something so beautiful created from something forgotten and discarded. Something so authentic created from almost nothing. Something so enormous created from pieces so small. Big things come in small packages at Obakki.

Product Notes

Each item is unique. Because these necklaces are made from natural materials, there will be slight variations in colour and patterning from piece to piece.

Jewelry may oxidize and tarnish over time from exposure to the light, moisture, friction and natural body oils. Remove jewelry when showering, doing the dishes and working out. Wipe your piece with a jewelry polishing cloth to remove oils before storing it in a cool, dry area.

Our Artisan Partners From Kibera

Our artisan partners are situated in the heart of Nairobi, in the neighbourhood of Kibera. Despite crushing poverty, the area has a thriving community of artists, dancers, craftsmen, and thousands of other talented residents. It is here in Kibera that you'll find Jack and his group of artisans.

Under Jack's creative direction, they create beautiful pieces from scraps found outside the studio where they work - discarded brass, dipped in 14K gold or silver. Jack is the visionary of this talented collective and they're looking to improve their quality of life by taking this discarded material and turn it into sophisticated, sustainable jewelry. By reinvesting profits from the sale of Jack's pieces Obakki has been able to provide the group with a new workshop to help them expand their business.
