Kenyan artisans handcraft this unisex bracelet from durable leather with a punched tin and copper plate, topped with a tooled brass elephant. The cow bone adornment had contrast, and a snap closure keeps the bracelet secure. Thick straps of leather fit comfortably around your wrist.

Joseph works from a home workshop in the rough Mathare neighborhood outside Nairobi. This soft-spoken, artistic man employs three young men, and together they craft jewelry, keepsakes and personal accessories from leather, brass and bone. Joseph enjoys the exchange of ideas encouraged during our design sessions. This year he took on the challenge of using dyes to diversify his leather goods, with beautiful results.
