PRODUCT INFORMATION

  • Materials : Fully made from upcycled brass in Kenya. Ion-plated earposts.
  • Dimensions : 2.8cm x 2.7cm.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

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.

ABOUT THE ARTISAN

The USO Earrings are handcrafted by the artisan Andrew, based in Ongata Rongai - a town that is separated from Nairobi city proper by the Mbagathi river. Andrew loves watching the pieces come to fruition after the multistage processes of drawing, cutting, polishing, and soldering. He hopes to one day be able to build his own house, start a workshop, and create employment for other young people in his rural village in Rongai.

ABOUT THE BRAND

Artisan & Fox is an ethical marketplace seeking to connect you to extraordinary craftsmanship sourced from across the Majority World. They empower artisans - silversmiths, weavers, and other makers alike - who are cut off from international markets; be it due to infrastructural barriers, political and societal unrest, or rural conditions.

They only collaborate with independent artisans, artisan cooperatives, and certified non-profits, and work to ensure that artisans receive 50% of the profits from your purchase. Their remaining profits are reinvested into their social programmes, such as zero-interest micro-credit (Thrive Transfers), and their pro-bono outreach with Syrian refugees (Threads of Syria).
