Meera’s Story: Several years ago, I traveled to South Africa and visited an ostrich farm. Always on the lookout for interesting and unusual materials to use in my designs, I was delighted to discover this durable product.
IT’S TRUE! I always thought that egg shells would be delicate and break if you looked at them, let alone tried to use them in jewelry. It turns out the ostrich shell, in its organic, natural state, can be cut, shaped, smoothed, and polished. When incorporated with genuine gemstones, Pearls, and quality Sterling Silver, my designers – a team of local Kenyan artisans – have created a fascinating collection of beautiful, durable, and wearable art.
