This striking image by Jimmy Nelson inspired our victory horn necklace, named after the pride associated with being a Masai warrior.
"When the Maasai migrated from the Sudan in the 15th century, they attacked the tribes they met along the way and raided cattle. By the end of their journey, they had taken over almost all of the land in the Rift Valley. To be a Maasai is to be born into one of the last great warrior cultures."

Our asra charm bracelets made from handmade recycled glass beads were inspired by the Swahili coast.

Wilson Mwangi is a budding artist , born in Nakuru in western Kenya . Born hearing and speech-impaired, he was excluded from the education system early and struggled long to find a job. Fortunately however, his disability led him to develop a unique talent of inlaying brass into wood in an incredibly intricate way. We love playing with patterns with Wilson and are developing jewelry that will emphasize the beauty of his craftsmanship.
"I am very pleased to be working (for Savannah Chic ). Even we artists, we need help sometimes. Previously I failed to sell my necklaces . Now my work is for sale in many stores, and even some art galleries Nairobi " - Wilson Mwangi
