Meet George 👋

George started working with A&A in 2018 when Bee met him on her first trip to Ghana. Bee bought 20 hooks to see how they went and boy did they go… We are now one of George’s biggest customers.  A lot of business dropped off during Covid for George, and he says thankfully our orders kept him busy and earning a living.
 
George has been practicing his craft for around 15 years.  He learnt from his uncle whom he was living with at the time. He really loves doing casting.  He did not finish school and was unsure how to earn a living until he joined the family casting business and his love for his craft has pushed him forwards.

Our fan-tastic fans are made by expert artisans in Ghana 💛

Most local people in this area start school very late and find it hard to make a living, therefore weaving is a vital source of income to all of the groups we work with. You can read more about our artisans by clicking the link in our bio now 

Our Head of Adventure, Bee, is there now visiting our artisans. Follow our stories to join her adventures 🇮🇳

Hand cast from recycled metals.l, our signature Kenyan collection is designed in-house and hand made in collaboration with husband and wife team, Anton & Benta in Nairobi. We’ve been working with the couple from the workshop at their family home for over 5 years and its been incredible to watch their children grow into young adults and take an active role in the business too.

Starting from one of Amy’s sketches, Anton will carve a master from car filler (which dries harder than plaster and therefore is more suited to the sand casting process). The newly carved shape will then be pushed into tightly packed sand to create a cavity in the mould of the same shape. Molten brass is poured into the hollow and the piece is tapped out ready for sanding and finishing.

You can browse and buy our jewellery online or in our Margate store.
