These beautifully handcrafted bone earrings will dangle gently with subtle crackling sounds. The charms are individually carved using reclaimed camel bone and connected with hand-wired brass links.

It's a simple, delicate, yet very effective design with a hint of tribal flavour thrown in. Great for holidays, dinner parties, music festivals etc.

Story

This item was handcrafted by Janet in Kenya.

Janet, who has a large family and a determined personality, is a brilliant designer with great craftsmanship. She has refined her work over many years of experiences. She has a unique way of translating traditional skills into rich modern designs.

Although camel bone sounds like an unlikely material for jewellery, this material provides some of the most amazing work currently coming out of Kenya’s artisan communities. The bone is all recycled from local butcheries, where they would otherwise be discarded.
