Fair Trade Camerounian Brass Frog Bracelet


Handcrafted of recycled brass using the "lost wax" method of casting at an artisans' cooperative in Bamenda, Cameroun, this brass bracelet is a wonderful example of traditional West African ornamentation and design.  The exquisite detail and decoration on the piece were achieved using finely woven wax threads which is a hallmark of "lost wax" casting.  The recurring design on this bracelet is an abstract representation of a frog, a traditional symbol of fertility in the region.  The brass alloy was made from recycled metal.  It is 2 1/2" in diameter.
