This beautiful ring is made by hand in Kibera, Kenya. The black ring is crafted from horn and brass, and the white is made from bone. These rings are chunky and the solid brass, gives them such a nice weight.
About the Artisan:
The Victorious Bone Craft Group was found by three local men in the Kibera Village of Kenya in 2006. Their mission was multi-faceted: to provide work for the young people of Kibera, to clean up the accumulating and dangerous waste produced by the local slaughterhouses, and to curb the foreign appetite for ivory. The result is nothing short of incredible. Today, Bone Craft provides work for more than 40 Kibera villagers and produces astonishingly beautiful jewelry from the bones left in heaps around Kibera.
