While each piece of jewellery is made to last, brass naturally tarnishes with oxidation and exposure to weather.
To refresh your artisan's craft to its original shine, simply use a wedge of lemon, and polish along the tarnished surface with a small cotton towel. Keep in a cool and dry place.
The SHIMO Earrings are 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.
