More of the Story: My very last day in Nairobi I found this piece (along with other beauties) at a Masai market near central Nairobi. The artist that made it is named, Samuel. He creates remarkable and unique pieces that were unlike any I had seen the rest of my time in Kenya. In his workshop in Nairobi, he also teaches students the art of African jewelry making.
