Handmade in Kenya, Malaika Cotton's jewelry is made out of old padlocks, door handles and hinges. The brass is melted down in small batches making approximately 10 of each design at a time. They aim for a sustainable production and to create work as they go.
The white beads are made of camel bones that are recycled when the animal dies. No animals were harmed for this production. Grey beads are made of stone.
Material: 100% recycled brass from old padlocks & hinges & handles
Care instructions: As brass gets tarnished over time use a polishing cloth for minor stains or rinse in hot soapy water and let dry, then clean with polishing cream and it will shine like never before.
