Bossa Nova translates as 'New Wave' in Portuguese. Let these buoyant horn circles reverberate against the glass venetian trade bead. Your life is a song and you are the instrument.
Thin dynamic rope with an assembly of horn, venetian glass, brass and seed beads. Finished with gold plated earring caps and nickel-free hooks.
The horn is a by-product of the cattle that is sold to abattoirs in Kenya. The cattle used are Ankole-Watusi cattle. The horn is washed and cleaned with bleach and thereafter used to make ornaments or holders/plates or jewellery etc.
These earrings weigh 11g each and are 11cm in length.
**Please note, horn colours may differ slightly as this is an organic material**
