Artist's Statement

Recently Gillie and Marc took a trip to Kenya to see the last three remaining Northern White Rhinos. A rhino is killed every six hours because of its horn. At this rate, all rhino species will be extinct in the wild in less than ten years and the Northern White Rhinos will be lost forever. 

In China, rhino horn sells for a million dollars. This makes it the most expensive commodity in the world and worth more per ounce than gold, diamonds or heroin. The most tragic part is that rhino horn is literally the same as our fingernails with no medicinal value.

Gillie and Marc have raised over $17,000 for rhino conservation. They created this horn pendant because they believe this is the only type of horn anyone should wear. A percentage of profits from all Art Wear pieces will go towards protecting rhinos from their imminent extinction.
