We love these long, thin earrings made of brass and cow horn or bone. They are a true statement!
The white material of these baubles are sustainably harvested bone, while the darker material come from horn. Transforming bone and horn into objects of use is a time-honored African tradition. The raw material comes from Ankole cows, native to Uganda and raised for food. The horn, which can weigh 1600 pounds and span 8', is boiled until malleable and shaped into handsome wares like this one.
