materials & details

18kt gold plated upcycled hammered brass.

size: 2 cm.

we use locally salvaged scrap metal which is melted down into brass sheets & repurposed for our jewellery pieces using a hammered brass technique. each piece is gold plated & coated with a water-based sealant to help prevent oxidation.

due to the handmade nature, slight variations may occur from piece to piece. please note that our kibera collection bears the unique marks of our artisans who craft these pieces in the slums — such as minor nicks & imperfections, showcasing the authenticity & craftsmanship of each piece. embrace the individuality & celebrate the human touch that makes each creation a one-of-a-kind expression of art & resilience.

story, sustainability & impact

this piece was designed in canada & handmade by master artisans in one of the world’s largest slums.

this collection empowers our artisans to break the cycle of generational poverty by offering a viable income through their craft & helps keep their city clean through the upcycling of local scrap metal — brass can be infinitely recycled without diminishing its composition, making it one of the most sustainable metals.


we collaborate with a danish packaging company with a focus on sustainability to bring you a planet-friendly packaging experience.

jewellery pouches

made with 100% organic cotton, our pouches are biodegradable & a perfect place to store your jewellery.

jewellery & postal boxes

made with buckram paper & corrugated cardboard materials sourced from a FSC certified sustainably managed forest that protects animal & plant life. sealed with water-based glue.


• gently wipe with a soft, damp cloth after wearing to remove any dirt or oils.

• remove before swimming or showering as water may tarnish your jewellery.

• try to keep your jewellery away from harsh chemicals, perfumes, lotions & hairsprays as it may cause discolouration.

• avoid extreme temperatures such as high heat & extreme cold. 

• store your jewellery separate from other jewellery to avoid scratches — the soft storage pouch & box provided is a perfect spot for your jewellery storage.

• if your piece is looking dull, bring it back to life with a natural cleaner such as mixing lemon juice & salt — simply soak it for a few minutes then gently rub it with a soft cloth, followed by rinsing with water & ensuring you dry thoroughly.
