Its unique look comes from being hand made using the lost wax method. First, African artists shape a piece of wax to their desired design. Then, clay is placed around the wax figure and allowed to harden. The form is next heated, melting the wax, which runs out through straws which were carefully placed into the clay when still moist. When the mold is empty, molten brass is poured into the now vacant shape. Finally, the mold is broken open and any details are finished by the artisan. This is an extremely time-consuming effort, but it produces totally original figures in an authentically ancient medium. Please be sure to see our other brass jewelry and pieces, equally unique!
And for over 200 pieces of African created and African inspired jewelry from which to choose your new treasure, please view the entire collection!
This necklace and its beads and pendant are formed by hand of natural materials. It will show special variations and idiosyncracies which add to its value! Each bead, pendant, and combination is unique, so the MEASUREMENTS ARE AVERAGES of these types of chokers and their pendants.
