These cute and quirky penguin shaped earrings have been handcrafted using cow bone by local artisans in Nairobi, Kenya. Each one features a slightly different and utterly unique little penguin.
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. 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.
