We are delighted to share with you a stunning range of horn and bone jewellery from Belgian designer, Catherine De Groote. Her distinctive designs reflect her passion for everything organic and her love of natural materials. All materials used are natural, biodegradeable and durable and come from the domestic water buffalo used as livestock in Asia. All materials are natural by-products - no animal is killed especially for the horn or bone. The beauty of this unique jewellery lies in the small imperfections of nature. It also hates water and perfume and you should avoid dropping it as it could crack. It is stunning and wonderfully tactile and the natural materials take on the temperature of the wearer and therefore it is incredibly comfortable to wear.
To make it easier to see the range we have split it into different entries on the website. To see the full range, enter "Caths of Belgium" in the search bar at the top of the page and you will see a list of all items.
Two very unusual horn bracelets and definitely amongst our favourites.
The first consists of four unpolished rectangular horn pieces strung together on strong elastic that runs invisibly through drilled channels in the horn. The bracelet is finished off with two of Caths' signature orange beads. A wonderfully natural piece with lovely markings. Each rectangular piece measures 3x6cm and the total inside width of bracelet is 5cm (but is elasticated so will fit most wrists).
The second is a simple round bracelet, in the same unpolished matte horn - dark grey with a thin layer of natural cream/grey horn running around both edges (see photos). Width of bracelet is 2cm, depth 1cm and total inside diameter is 6.5cm.
