NOTICE OF TEMPORARY CLOSURE

Onagono online shop is temporarily closed and will reopen in Autumn 2017. You can still view our collection in the mean time, however the shopping carts and checkout are closed during this period. We are sorry for inconvenience.

This stunning triple strand bracelet is a great accessory piece for when you want an elegant look. These marble-like beads are beautifully handcrafted by the artisan and while every single bead has gorgeous shades of natural and brown they all look slightly different thanks to irregularity of the natural material. The small brass beads laid in between the horn beads give a classic touch to the design.

It will look great with a maxi dress on a beach/coastal holiday. Also suitable for occasions such as tea parties and weddings, where you reveal your wrist by holding a drink.

ORIGIN: KENYA
MATERIAL: BRASS, COW HORN
SIZE: Approx. 19cm long (fits a wrist 15cm round or less)

 

Story

This item was handcrafted by Veronicah in Kenya.

Veronicah lives and works in Kibera which is located on the outskirt of Nairobi and is the largest urban slum in Africa. Her entrepreneurial spirit drove her to learn how to build her own small design and production business at a local community group.

She uses materials that are locally sourced and/or recycled. The recycled horns that she uses are salvaged from her local butchers. She then turns them into beautiful pieces of jewellery by filing, sanding and polishing them.
