We're a huge fan of these new drop earrings, and the juxtaposition of traditional Kenyan Batik* bone with modern form. A half moon of solid brass holds a concentric crescent of paper thin cow bone - a sustainably harvested byproduct of beef industry.
*Batik Bone is a dynamic art form in which motifs are applied by resist-dyeing the material. Please note that each piece has a slightly different and wonderfully unique pattern.
- Approximately 2" long x 1.75" wide
- Solid, Nickel-free Brass
- Sustainably harvested cow horn
- Handmade in Nairobi, Kenya
This is special because...
We designed your new piece of jewelry in collaboration with Kenya-based jeweler, Angela Stephens. This exclusive solid brass collection — some embellished with ethically harvested cow bone and horn — is proudly handcrafted by the Anganza Community Project in Kibera, Nairobi’s largest slum. The program provides disadvantaged women with vocational training, a safe work environment, fair and dependable compensation and financial skills.
