An elegant pair of earrings for everyday wear.

The CHERI Earrings are handcrafted by the 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.
