Attractive on both men and women, these natural bracelets are handmade in Kenya using conditioned cow leather. A slice of white cow bone is inset with pieces of brass to add contrast, and the bracelet is closed with a simple snap closure.
Each bracelet measures 1.5"W x 8.75"L with 2.5" inner diameter. Designs will vary slightly.
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.
