Irregular Oval Brass Earrings

£8.00

These irregular oval brass hoop earrings are an unusual twist on the classic brass hoop. Ethically and sustainably made in Kenya, local artisans hammer the brass by hand meaning each pair is unique.

The jewellery workshop in the Kibera Slum in Nairobi was set up to allow local young boys who had been living on the street opportunities for stable work and a chance to learn new skills. The boys 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 and support themselves and their families long-term.

3cm x 2.5cm. Butterfly closure made using hypoallergenic metal.
