Carved Bone and Lost Wax Brass Mask
Extra large chain ✨ 10cm Brass mask and carved extra large bone beads ✨
Majority of the materials I use are shipped from the Motherland, and around the world, for which I always pay the asking price, which in turn influences the price of the ready chain.
The crystals I use are always sourced ethically and it is also reflected in their quality and price.
The mask is 10 cm tall and is done with the lost wax method by master beaders from Kumasi in Ghana.
Brass lost wax beads and pendants are made using the ancient ‘lost wax’ technique by a community of master bead makers near Kumasi, capital of the old Ashanti Kingdom.
Each bead is created first in bee’s wax, then covered in clay. When the mould is fired in the kiln, the wax melts away to be replaced by molten brass. When the mould cools, it is broken apart to reveal the finished brass bead. Because the mould is destroyed to extract the finished work, each bead is totally unique.
