On research, colonization forced many Kenyan communities to disown and abandon, various indigenous jewelry and art. With #OwnYourCulture Campaign I seek to restore inherently 'traditional' pieces as fashion statements. And even beyond, because we as Kenyans really need to appreciate and nurture what is ours, from arts, music as well as these ornaments. For example this beaded choker, the intricate design and detail makes It perfect for the simplest LBDs!
This piece is perfect for the office given it's colorful yet minimalist piece for Its size.
Neck Piece available at Kuona Trust Art Shop Nairobi
