Since the earliest time, man has made utensils from natural material such as clay, stone metal, bone and horn. They use ancient techniques to create useful tools, beads or jewelry.

Stephen, our artisan, creates beautiful and unique jewelry mainly with brass, recycled cow horns and cow bones. The horns and bones are boiled in hot oil in order for the material to soften up, then is pressed into thin plates. They are cut into various pieces depending on the jewelry design. The artisan smoothed them with sandpaper to create a glossy finish and composes with different pieces or embellishment to create a nice necklace or earrings.

He also uses the technique of Batik for his Bone Beads (technique uses for centuries). The motifs featured on Batik Bone in Kenya are heavily influenced by animals or the environment (zebra stripes, leaves…).
