The story starts on the Swahili coast

Kaila walks Kenya's shores

With its gem set, the piece is  finished and ready to be sold

 
I collect cuttlebones from the beaches of Kenya and take them back to my studio in the Maasai Mara. I carve out the shapes, pour in the molten silver and love that what might emerge is always a mystery. Sometimes I get what I imagined and other times I get something entirely different. Even the unpredicted outcome is beautiful. I love that. That is organic creativity.
