YEWO is a social enterprise + a jewelry design studio based in both Asheville, NC and Manchewe Village, Malawi. Every YEWO item is thoughtfully hand fabricated in their Malawi based workshop using both unique and traditional metal working techniques. By choosing to make products in the way they do, they directly create jobs in Malawi that encourage growth, financial stability, and a family-like workplace. In addition, a portion of YEWO sales are invested in local community development initiatives in Malawi.
The ‘Mwana’ Studs (meaning ‘Child’ in Tumbuka) are crafted from sterling silver posts and brass off-cuts coated in a luxuriously thick layer of 14k recycled gold to create a delicate, one-of-a-kind look. The lightweight dainty design ensures comfortable everyday wear, while the organic texture and dome shape creates a playful style.
