Handmade, recycled, ethical jewelry and accessories, Akamae connects designers with artisan refugees to co-create designs that empower and inspire.
Be’s Studs were designed by Be to have a minimalist sleek style. She wanted to create a lightweight earring for everyday wear. Be, who CHOOSES to wear her neck rings, knows how heavy brass can be when worn everyday. Created from recycled brass rings that Rimu CHOSE to wear on her neck, the artist first heated them over a fire, hammered them flat and added the unique design. These slim and delicate studs wear a simple pattern, etched by hand, also seen on Care's Bangle.
