Sweet little matte brass arches + teak wood circles. Hypoallergic titanium posts.
Founded in 2018 by duo Maddy + Kyle, Yewo's mission is to fight poverty in rural Malawi by investing in local leaders through artisan training, holistic job creation, and sustainable employment with social perks (small business training, daily meals, personal budgeting classes, staff parites, + much more). Additionally, extra profits are invested into local education initiatives and scholarship programs for individuals who would otherwise not have the opportunity to go to school.
Each brass Yewo piece has been coated with an anti-tarnish protective layer to delay the effects of tarnish on brass jewelry. With proper care, this coating can keep your Yewo items looking beautiful for years.
Avoid wearing your Yewo pieces in the shower, while swimming, spraying perfume, or using any cleaning products. When not wearing, keep your item in a safe place where it will not be scratched rubbed against rough textures, as this can wear away the protective coating. If your coating has been scratched or worn away, you can remove any tarnish spots with a brass cleaner such as Brasso.
Rehydrate wood pieces on your YEWO jewelry with olive oil or coconut oil.
