Breathtaking is the only word that we can use to describe the authentic representation of the noble Maasai tribe in these best-selling earrings and matching necklace.

The incredible detail and scale of these pieces are a homage to the Maasai's proud history of courage and tradition, the perfect standout accessories for minimalist and maximalist outfits alike.

The most reflective metal, silver mirrors the true nature of your soul, unconditional love. It draws negative energy out of your body and replaces it with positive energy, protecting, strengthening and focusing whoever it adorns. 

Also available in gold.

The Maasai [which means people speaking Maa] people of northern Tanzania and southern Kenya are arguably one of the most well known people of Africa due to their distinctive way of dress and warrior jumping dance during the coming of age ceremony.

Semi-nomadic, they live along the arid and semi-arid land of the Great Rift Valley, heading cattle for sustenance, and are one of the few African people who still maintain most of their traditions.

In Maasai tradition, the only way for a young boy to achieve warrior status was to single-handedly kill a lion with his spear.

However, due to the declining lion population, would be warriors are now encouraged to hunt lions in groups.

Not to be outdone, the Maasai women have a long history of bead working, evolving from using clay, ivory and shells among others as raw materials, to using brightly colored glass beads since the late nineteenth century.

The resulting rainbow hued multi-layered necklaces, chokers, bracelets and earrings are nothing short of spectacular.
