Handcrafted in Kenya

Elegant brass jewellery inspired by the ridges and textures of Kenya’s sand dunes.

Each piece is ethically handmade from upcycled and recycled materials by our Kenyan artisan partners Ojiko, Elijah, and Andrew.

#KnowYourArtisan

Ojiko

Ojiko is an artisan from the Kenyan port town of Kisumu.

Having picked up the art of jewelry making in 2006 from a local apprenticeship in Nairobi, Ojiko’s biggest dream is to teach others to create jewelry that would, in turn, help his local community.

Ojiko hand-forges each brass piece with care and expertise.

Elijah

Elijah is a 28 year-old artisan from Kenya, and loves creating elegant pieces from recycled brass materials.

Elijah's favorite part of his job is knowing someone will be wearing his piece!

In the future, he hopes to open his own workshop to employ other young jewelry makers and artisans who shares his talent for craftsmanship.

Andrew

Andrew has been crafting jewelry for twelve years, having first started when he was just 22.

He loves watching the pieces come to fruition after the multistage processes of drawing, cutting, polishing, and soldering.

Andrew 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.

Partnerships on the Ground

Artisan & Fox is privileged to work with Marta K., a development professional based in Kenya, to provide Ojiko, Elijah, and Andrew with a platform to showcase their craft.

These artisans are incredibly talented craftsmen with an eye for detail. Our hope is to help all of them to expand their micro-businesses in Kenya.
