With these Silver Arrow Earrings, it is easy to see why the fashion set can't stop talking about the dramatic designs from Jade Jagger and her Mumbai label. A statement style to be shown off, wear yours with hair swept up for full effect.
In collaboration with our artisan partners, Soko is pioneering ethical, fast fashion; delivering you fashion-forward style at affordable prices that is ethically produced with artisans from under-served communities. All products in Soko's Artisan Collection are produced in collaboration with our artisan community, often bringing several production techniques together into one design for a look that is entirely unique, beautifully handcrafted, and representative of African techniques.
Our brass wire pieces are handcrafted from locally-sourced materials. Soko artisans solder individual wire pieces then shape this framework into a wearable product by molding it on a wooden form. Each piece is buffed and polished to a glossy shine.
