Brass Cuff

Plume

From Kenya

This piece is handcrafted by collaborating artisans in Kenya. This cuff can be worn with anything and has a nice comfortable weight. It can be adjusted to size. The black is a horn detail and the white is made from bone.

About the Artisan
The Victorious Bone Craft Group was found by three local men in the Kibera Village of Kenya in 2006. Their mission was multi-faceted: to provide work for the young people of Kibera, to clean up the accumulating and dangerous waste produced by the local slaughterhouses, and to curb the foreign appetite for ivory. The result is nothing short of incredible. Today, Bone Craft provides work for more than 40 Kibera villagers and produces astonishingly beautiful jewelry from the bones left in heaps around Kibera.

PLUME accessories combine traditional craft skills with modern design, providing empowerment and equality to women globally, and the belief that nothing is more cherished in a home or fashion collection than truly unique, handmade products of the highest quality. PLUME designer and founder, Kate Collins,focuses on the essentials of women's wardrobes and lifestyle, melding traditional decorative hand craftsmanship with a contemporary vision to make each product one-of-a-kind. Given the handmade detail of every piece,PLUME's products are produced in highly limited quantities on a seasonal basis.

Material
Raw Brass & Horn/Bone

Care
Since brass is a natural alloy it will gradually patina over time with exposure to oxygen and moisture. If you prefer a bright sheen, this effect can be removed with a quick polish. All of our pieces can be polished with a brass cleaner (we use Brasso) and a soft cloth or paper towel. To clean using ingredients you may already have at home, mix lemon juice and baking soda into a paste, rub onto surface with a cloth, then rinse off and buff dry to a shine. To care for your horn jewelry, avoid exposure to excessive moisture or sunlight. Wipe clean with a soft cloth. Keep away from water.

Note
As this product is handmade, each is one of a kind and may vary slightly.
