HANDMADE IN NAIROBI

Made with upcycled cow horn and brass, these classic earrings are available in 18K gold or silver plating.

Story

Cow horn is a byproduct of the food industry, and it usually ends up in the trash––but our artisan partners in Kenya are turning this raw material into beautiful jewelry.

Situated in the heart of Nairobi is the neighbourhood of Kibera, and despite crushing poverty, the area has a thriving community of artists, dancers, craftsmen, and thousands of other talented residents. It is here in Kibera where you'll find Jack and his group of artisans. Under Jack's creative direction, they create beautiful pieces from scraps found outside the tiny shack where they work. Jack is the visionary of this talented collective and they're looking to improve their quality of life through access to opportunities.

Product Notes

Each item is unique. Because the horn portion is a natural material, there  may 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.
