Beaded Leather Earrings
These leather earrings which are decorated with coloured beads are from the Maasai Community. The earrings are known as Ennani Enko or Enchoni Enkiok. They are worn by married women. Similar earrings with some variations in design are also found among the Samburu, Rendille, El Molo and Kalenjin communities.
