BULL HORN: Exquisitely handcrafted earrings created with ethically sourced cow horns— a byproduct of the Haitian food industry. Natural horn products are distinct; each piece has its own unique combination of various shades of milk, honey, caramel, and charcoal tones. No two pieces have the exact same colors or pattern.
These horns earrings are responsibly collected by artisans in the metropolitan area of Port-au-Prince and in the Artibonite and Central Plateau Department. These beautiful remnants of bull horn generates employment for the artisans and provision for their families. The process to transform the horn itself uses heat to turn these horn pieces into shapable plates. Once formed, the horn gets its shine through the process of polishing with non-toxic hypoallergenic products, free of harsh chemicals such as ethanol, sealant, or primer.
