drums of passion necklace


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.
