These solid brass rings beautifully blend traditional Kenyan jewelry making and materials with a modern, minimal design. The white inlays are sustainably harvested bone, while the darker inlays come from horn. The only downside is picking your favorite combination. Guess you'll have to have one of each!
- 6.5 ring size. Open design allows for size adjustment
- Solid, Nickel-free Brass; Sustainably-harvested cow bone and 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 feet, 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.
