These beautiful and unique earrings are made in Nairobi, Kenya. They are a deep brown colour with a detailed etched design featuring an African mask, handcrafted using cow bone and brass by skilled local artisans.
The jewellery workshop in the Kibera Slum in Nairobi was set up to allow local young men who had been living on the street opportunities for stable work and a chance to learn new skills. They were trained not only in the skill of jewellery making but also how to manage and run the workshop themselves, allowing it to be self sustainable so it could support themselves and their families long-term.
