Brass Strawberry Pendant

$8.00

During 2018 Bead Hunt Funky Frog made a big order from the Kokofrom Cooperative outside Kumasi. These Strawberry  pendants were made especially for Funky Frog . The Strawberry is 41 mm including loop. It was fun to read that “the strawberry is a symbol for Venus, the Goddess of Love, because of its heart shapes and red color. … and that to symbolize perfection and righteousness, medieval stone masons carved strawberry designs on altars and around the tops of pillars in churches and cathedrals.”

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 …
