This architectural solid brass ring beautifully blends traditional Kenyan jewelry making and materials with a modern, minimal design. The inlays, each completely unique, are sustainably harvested cow horn, ranging from light tortoiseshell to deep black. A fan favorite from day one!
- Open design allows for size adjustment
- Solid, Nickel-free Brass; Sustainably-harvested cow horn
- Handmade in Nairobi, Kenya
This is special because...
Transforming bone and horn into objects of use is a time-honored African tradition. The raw material comes from the Ankole cows, native to Africa 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.
Handmade in Kenya in partnership with the Anganza Community Project in Nairobi's Kibera Slum, which trains jewelry-making skills and provides income generation for disadvantaged women.
