Our striking Inyambo horn jewelry is created by an independent artisan partner, John Paul, in Rwanda. Each piece of horn is sanded and polished before JP carefully creates each necklace or set of earrings. This unique jewelry varies in color, as does the piece of horn it is created from.
Inyambo are one of the ecotypes derived from Ankole cattle and are reared mostly in Rwanda. These cattle play a key role in the livelihoods of their owners by providing food, draft power and hides. John Paul's jewelry is created as a bi-product of the meat industry, ensuring that nothing is wasted.
