THE STORY

These beauties were curated during my time in Lamu, Kenya, the oldest settlement in East Africa and a UNESCO world heritage site. They were inspired by traditional jewelry worn by African natives on a nearby island, Pate. They were handmade by a local silver smith, Slim. His shop looked nothing like a jewelry store and he didn't make much, but what he did create was exceptional. Earrings like these you will never find again. 

  • 2.5" L X 1"
  • French hook pierced backs
  • Sterling Silver
  • Handmade by "Slim" in Lamu, Kenya
