Traditionally dyed disks of bone elevate these dynamic earrings to an international work of art, serving to connect you to the lives of women artisans a world away. An exotic addition to your jewelry collection, they represent a rich tradition of Kenyan crafts.
Handcrafted by a group of artisans in the semi-arid region of Kenya's eastern province -- where the sparse rainfall creates conditions of abject poverty. Dedicated to bringing positive change to their lives, the women from the community provide a primary source of income with jewelry created in group workshops, or woven textiles created in an artisan's home. In both homes and workshops, an emphasis is placed on fair principles and good working conditions.
- Dyed bone is ethically sourced from water buffalo (passed away from natural causes)
- French hooks
- 1" diameter (2.5 cm)
- Handmade in & fairly traded from Kenya
Light weight and unique.
Very lightweight & look great with my various animal print outfits.
These looks pretty unique but it was kind of too big for my face.
