Fair Trade Camerounian Brass Double 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 7/8" in diameter.
