This is special because...
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.
Handmade in Kenya by Angela Stephens of That Missing Piece, a jewelry project in partnership with Anganza Community Project in Kibera Slum in Nairobi that trains jewelry-making skills and provides income generation for disadvantaged women.
