drums of passion necklace

90

Long necklace featuring an artisan round West African brass pendant.
This pendant is handmade from lost wax in the Ivory Coast.
The basic method of lost-wax casting has been widely practiced on the African continent for centuries. The technique requires a great deal of skill and a careful attention to changing temperatures to prevent unwanted cracking or other damage to either the clay mold or to the metal sculpture during the casting process.
