This stunning limited edition piece is part of the Soko x Laura Siegel collaboration, an exclusive design partnership connecting one of Canada’s foremost ethical fashion designers with artisanal craftsmanship in Kenya. Trapezoids of hand carved horn rest on their edges against the chest, separated by geometric brass beads. The sequence of natural horn shapes stand upright to form an organic layered volume that drapes the neck. The partial version hangs from a brass chain, creating a focal point just below the collar bone. Each necklace is one of a kind, handmade in the Nairobi workshops of Soko artisans, using ethically sourced horn and upcycled brass. Available in natural or overdyed chestnut horn.
An authentic and unique silver necklace crafted with centuries-old techniques from The Berbers or Imazighen (_íïíŠFree people_íïí©; plural of Amazigh), the original inhabitants of North Africa.

They nurture their cultural identity by means of a number of art forms, being especially famous for cappella singing (izran) and handicrafts. In these women_íïí©s visual expression of identity, jewelry play an important role.
