Artisan - Elijah
Elijah is a 28 year-old artisan from Kenya, and loves creating elegant pieces from recycled brass materials.
Elijah's favorite part of his job is knowing someone will be wearing his piece! In the future, he hopes to open his own workshop to employ other young jewelry makers and artisans.
Elijah’s pieces in the KENYA collection include the fan-favourite DUARA studs.
Artisan - Ojiko
Ojiko is an artisan from the Kenyan port town of Kisumu. Having picked up the art of jewelry making in 2006 from a local apprenticeship in Nairobi, Ojiko’s biggest dream is to teach others to create jewelry that would, in turn, help his local community.
Ojiko’s craftsmanship in the KENYA collection includes the elegant statement piece, the JUA Choker.
Artisan & Fox is privileged to collaborate with Marta of Kipato Unbranded to provide the artisans Ojiko and Elijah with a platform to showcase their craft. Both artisans are incredibly talented craftsmen with an eye for detail. Our hope is to help both Ojiko and Elijah expand their micro-businesses in Kenya.
