Buffalo and cow horn is a primary material that is ethical and beautiful for many reasons. It is a by product of the food and farming industry, repurposed to reduce waste. Our pieces are made with no chemicals. Heat and oil is used to form the horn into malleable plates which are then sculpted into various forms. The jewellery gets its shine from the process of water polishing without the use of toxic ethanol, sealant or primer. The making is not an industrial process, rather it is a simple hand made, environmentally respectful process that does not cause pollution or waste.
Sleek and elegant, this hand sculpted leaf shape brooch is made from sustainable buffalo horn. It is hand cut to create the articulated form and hand polished to draw out the natural ebony colour of the horn. The back features a strong steel pin and hook for attachment. This versatile brooch can be strapped on anything and anywhere. Pin it to a hat, handbag or attach to an existing necklace to create a dramatic juxtaposition.
As this is a natural material, please accept the variations as an inherent characteristic beauty of the material, not a defect.
