Note: They were handcrafted by artisans in West Africa; each brass bead was cast using the lost wax method, a type of metal casting the Baoulé tribe (of the Akan people) are known for.
Please note that each piece is handmade with love and care in the raw, organic, sometimes rough style traditional to West African jewelry and craft. This means that similar items are each unique, one-of-a-kinds, not identical or usually symmetrical, and most will have imperfections due to both age and style.
Also, note that photographs were taken under natural light, but colors may vary slightly depending on monitor color restrictions.
