The Irga Déco Earrings are handmade in either dark or light Ankole cow horn combined with solid brass palm leaf tops. The Déco earrings are finished by hand in England with solid silver pin-backs. The Irga name and design inspiration is derived from the iconic Art Déco Irga building on the Horn of Africa - designed by Italians in the 1930s. Each pair of earrings are handmade from solid brass and natural Ankole cow horn (by-product) by artisans in Kibera, Africa's largest slum. Please note that colour variation, horn inclusions and slight irregularities may occur.

Fouché jewellery is designed by Claire Fouché, an artist and jeweller with a deep interest in African culture, craftsmanship & rare gemstones. Claire takes inspiration from the Italian art déco architecture of Asmara on the Horn of Africa and interprets into modern, sculptured cuffs and bold earrings amongst her jewellery designs. Fouché jewellery is hand carved by artisans in Nairobi using locally sourced materials such as Ankole cow horn and wood that is intricately finished by hand in small workshops based in England. Claire is half South African and grew up travelling around Africa with her parents. The 'Diana' Cuff is named after her late mother and takes inspiration from the warrior cuffs worn by style icon Diana Vreeland and Nancy Cunard. Claire is a former couture jeweller for Fabergé where she trained as a designer and gemologist. Fouché jewellery provides ongoing fair-trade employment to skilled artisans in Nairobi and Kibera, Africa's largest slum. In 2012 Claire co-founded the Maisha Foundation to support young talent from Kibera in skills training programmes. Fouché jewellery is coveted by inspirational women around the world, including Sienna Miller and Lucinda Chambers, and has featured in British, French & Brazilian Vogue.
