Soko Ziwa Drop Earrings
Description
Made from recycled brass, these folded hoop earrings make sophisticated statements that transition well from everyday wear to evening outings. Ethically sourced materials, elegant design, and sustainable craftsmanship come together to create these brass drop pieces. Soko redefines ethical fashion by matching marginalized Kenyan craftspeople with real-time demands to bring their stunning statements to market. Designed in San Francisco and handmade in Kenya. 2" x 1.2."
 
This design was made using a traditional sand-casting technique. With this method, a pattern or exact replica of the object that will be cast is used to create a mold. The mold is made by packing sand, which contains a molasses chemical binder, around the pattern. After the mold is created, molten metal is poured into it and allowed to cool. The mold is then removed with a hammer and the pieces are hand-finished to be smooth and shiny.
