This nature-inspired pendant necklace is made using an intricate sand casting technique by master brassworkers in Kenya. The Artisans create a mold with sand and clay, then pour molten brass into the mold. Once the brass cools and hardens, they remove the pendant from the mold and add a brushed metal look using four different metal sandpapers!
