Brass Pineapple Pendant

$10.00

During 2018 Bead Hunt Funky Frog made a big order from the Kokofrom Cooperative outside Kumasi. These Pineapple  pendants were made especially for Funky Frog . The Pineapple is 49 mm including loop. It is said spiritually the Pineapple symbolizes the hospitality of families, true friendship, diplomacy and openhandedness. And apparently the sound of the Chinese word for pineapple is close to the sound of “good luck coming your way,” so the pineapple has become a popular traditional feng shui symbol of wealth, fortune, and prosperity.

The process these metal smiths are using is the same as their ancestors… back then it was gold now it is any metal they can get their hands on!! If you would like to see the intricate process check out the blog here …
