This collection comes from South East Asia's isolated, rural villages in Vietnam & from South America's Colombia Northern Guajira desert, Wayuu region. The Wayuu believe that in order to thank & honor the animals they consume, they must utilize all of its parts, including bone, hoof & horn. This jewelry is made from upcycled, non-endangered bovine & water buffalo horn, discarded from animals that died from old age or were used for food consumption.
