This beautiful copper bead is hand casted in the design of the traditional "Baule sun" from the Ivory Coast. Increasingly difficult to find, Baule (also known as Baoule) tribal beads are some of the most unique casted beads from West Africa. Each bead measures approximately 79 x 69mm, with a hole size of approximately 2mm. We've partnered with a special workshop to bring this unique treasure to you. Pay close attention to the detail and note the high quality finish of this special bead. Great as a pendant centerpiece on your next jewelry design! This artisan product is made using premium copper electroplating over brass to make these copper finish customer favorites.
I am not sure I can use this in a necklace design or as a stand-a-lone due to the weight! I will patina it and see where I go from here! I love Elephants, thus the reason for this selection. Very Happy with product quality and service!
