  • Nice mid-size Lost Wax Cast beads, openwork basket shape 12x14mm
  • On 21-inch strands (always not counting the raffia)
  • Large holes make these versatile and the open work cuts down on weight
  • Unlike most Lost Wax Cast beads, these have no noticeable flaws
  • Lost Was Casting is a laborious process: Each of these beads is first made in wax. The wax is covered by clay, the clay is heated and the wax runs out through openings left for that purpose. Molten recycled metal is poured in. After cooling, the clay mold is broken open and the individually unique beads are removed, cleaned, and polished. Made in Ghana.
