Meet the Artisan
The Blacksmith from Nairobi
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".
