Large African Jingle Vintage African Brass Bell Beads, Lost-Wax Filigree, Approx. 17x24mm, 10 pc Tribal Charm, Jewelry Making Supply, JuJu

These little jingles are special. Normally I carry these bells in a smaller size, which is beautiful. But when I stumbled upon these larger bells, my heart skipped a beat. These precious bells have stories to tell. They are old, and were made in Ghana. They were made using a lost-wax technique, where metal is wrapped around a wax ball. The wax is then melted out, leaving the hollow metal filigree shape behind. I have never come across strands of these this large before.

These gems make the most beautiful tinkering sound when they move or hit one another. They are beautiful in jewelry, in a cluster. These have a clapper inside, so they do have the most beautiful subtle jingle.

Bell measures approximately 17mm around, and 24mm tall with loop (loop itself measures approximately 8mm. The hole size of the loop is approximately 4mm).

This listing is for 10 pieces.
