Checkers are BACK and we're totally psyched! 

These little checkered studs are even more limited edition than beanie babies (which btw if you still have beanie babies with the tags on, you could be sitting on some serious $$$... so obv you'll want to get on these limited editions while you still can too.) 


Zena earrings are all made out of natural Ankole Cattle Horn which means they are all completely unique. The markings and patternings vary slightly across each set. The posts are gold plated surgical steel studs. Each pair comes in their own gift bag hand-made by the Zena women from our favorite local Kitenge fabrics. 


Made out of recycled materials, Ships to US + UK, Handmade

Zena products are handcrafted by female entrepreneurs in Kamuli, Uganda. Zena women are female entrepreneurs who were previously living below the poverty line. Through short term apprenticeships, they are able to earn a living wage above the poverty line, while saving monthly towards the start-up capital they need to start their businesses.

At Zena, we believe that investing in female entrepreneurs has the power to change the stories of extreme poverty and gender inequality.

All of our products are made from waste materials.

Our earrings are handcrafted from Ankole Cattle Horn that has been discarded as a by-product of the agricultural industry. We love that working with Cattle horn supports local farmers in Uganda to diversify their income while making the agricultural industry more efficient. No animals are harmed in the making of our products. 

We also use recycled scrap brass from Kenya. 

We are committed to using recycled, locally sourced materials and making intentional packaging choices. 


Standard: $4.90
