Soko and Laura Siegel are pleased to announce the sales and retail launch of an exclusive jewelry design collaboration, the Soko x Laura Siegel collection. The capsule collection features four limited edition pieces created through the design partnership between Laura Siegel, one of Canada’s foremost ethical fashion designers and Soko, an innovative jewelry brand that partners with Kenyan artisans to deliver design and craftsmanship from the developing world to international consumers.
The Soko x Laura Siegel Stacked Horn Necklace is available in a full or partial version. In each piece, trapezoids of hand carved horn rest on their edges against the chest, separated by geometric brass beads. The sequence of natural horn shapes stand upright to form an organic layered volume that drapes the neck. The partial version is a bold pendant style hanging from a brass chain, and the full wraps around the base of the neck. Both are accented with a signature brass Soko tag.
Each necklace is one of a kind, handmade in the Nairobi workshops of Soko artisans, using ethically sourced horn and upcycled brass. The Soko x Laura Siegel Stacked Horn Necklace comes in natural or overdyed chestnut horn.
