Our honey bee collection is a delicate tribute to our small busy friends, and our very busy co-founder Bee on all of her adventures. Each design is first made using wax wire, inspired by ancient Roman filigree jewellery. It is then brought to life by our partner workshop in the Pink City of Jaipur with recycled brass or silver.
Most pieces in this capsule collection are available in a choice of Brass or Recycled Silver.
ARTISANS & VALUES
Our Kenyan Jewellery is made collaboratively between the fantastic husband and wife team, Anton and Benta as well as skilled artisans that are part of a Fair Trade social enterprise in Mombasa, Kenya.

Materials: Recycled Brass
After several uses our recycled brass and silver jewellery will start to tarnish slightly. Some prefer the brass and silver when it becomes darker and more earthy. However you may prefer to restore your jewellery to its original polished gold tone.
The best way to polish your jewellery is to use a brass or silver polish, we suggest Brasso (Always follow the instructions on the bottle). If you don't have any polish to hand, or prefer a more natural alternative, cover half a lemon in salt and rub over your jewellery until you see the tarnish start to lift, rinse well and polish dry with a soft cloth.
Avoid prolonged contact with liquids and never spray with perfumes as this will cause the brass to tarnish quicker.
