Brass tarnishes with oxidation and 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 NUSA Choker is handcrafted by the artisan Ojiko 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.
