Artisan Origins: Nairobi, Kenya
Smooth, tactile ball-drop earrings made from sustainably upcycled brass.
A playful, contemporary geometric piece, the MWEZI Globe Drop Earrings are artfully handcrafted from traditional craftsmanship techniques with our artisans in Kenya.
Materials: Fully made from upcycled brass in Kenya. Ion plated earhooks. Nickel free.
Dimensions: 6.5cm drop length.
Care Instructions: Brass oxidises with exposure to moisture. To polish your artisan's craft, use a wedge of lemon, and polish along the surface with a small cotton towel.
The MWEZI 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.
