Description

Unique, recycled Fair Trade earrings, featuring delicately crafted zebra shapes.

•   The earrings are made from waste cow bone. A sanding machine is used to shape the bone.

•   Patterns are created with hot wax – a technique known as Batik.

•   Tiny black Maasai beads adorn the fitting where the earrings attach to the hooks, which are made from nickel-free base metal and therefore hypoallergenic.

•   The colours used in the beadwork are selected for their beauty and are also symbolic and have important meanings understood by the tribe.
Black represents the people and the struggles they must endure.

•   “Kazuri”, which means small and beautiful in Swahili, certainly applies to these earrings!

These Fair Trade bone earrings have been hand-crafted with pride by skilled artisans at Excel Concepts in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya.

DIMENSIONS – the earrings have a total drop of 3 cm from the base of the hook x 2 cm wide.

Did you know?
Batik is a traditional method where a design is applied using hot wax, then the object is dyed (black in this case) and the dried wax is removed to reveal a distinctive and unique white silhouette of the wax seal.
