Born in the Migori County in Nyanza Province, Ojiko came to Nairobi to find work, starting to create jewelry in 2005. A year later, he transitioned to working using brass.
Today, as he lives and works alone in Kibera, he uses his income to support his wife who is currently in university in Kisumu. He loves the challenges of jewellery-making because it enables him to make enough to support himself and his wife. But beyond that, he is driven by the passion that he has for his work.
