Tembo Charm Bracelet:
This exotic and ethnic one-of-a-kind bracelet is chock full of African flavor! I designed it to accompany my unique Tembo Necklace. It features a dynamite and versatile palette of carved bone, African brass, cream Czech glass and a wonderful and unique carved bone elephant disc and dragonfly charm.
The African brass beads in this bracelet were individually handmade in a small Ashanti village near Kumasi, Ghana called Krofrom using traditional and very time intensive methods. The method is called “lost wax” and it consists of weaving wax "wires" into a form, investing them in clay, burning out the wax and pouring molten brass into the mold. Each mold is hand made making each bead slightly different from the next. These amazing miniature works of art look and feel ancient in appearance and are overflowing with African character and soul. These particular beads are actually vintage.
Tembo is the Swahili word for elephant.
