Ankole Bull Horn
Used for centuries for milk and meat, Ankole cows are indigenous to east Africa. Yet once they are slaughtered, their striking long horns are usually discarded. Typically in Africa, waste is burnt and it's not environmentally friendly. So why not collect the horns and transform them into something beautiful. Each horn is unique in colouring, making each piece different from one another.
Brass is a metallic alloy made up of copper and zinc and used since the third millennium B.C. in places like West Asia and the Mediterranean. It has been used to make jewellery for thousands of years and favoured due to it's versatility and beauty. It's softness and malleability is one of the primary reasons we are able to create such standout pieces. Brass is also eco friendly due to the fact that it can be recycled over and over again because of it's unique chemical properties.
Aluminium is the unsung hero in the jewellery world! It is eco friendly and is completely made from recycled materials. Ever put on a couple of rings and bracelets and feel like you've gained 10 lbs in that arm? Aluminium is (1/3) the weight of silver and doesn't tarnish. Our boldest statement aluminium pieces are therefore not only super light, eco friendly but also a good hypoallergenic choice.
