Katanga, African tribal axe earrings in brass

These earrings are made of brass.

These brass earrings were inspired by an African axe make by the Songye, an ethnic group in the Katanga region of Congo. I stumbled by accident on a photo of this ceremonial axe which I took the design and shape for this jewel. You can see this item on the last picture of the panorama.
This ax is one of many objects made of iron or coppers by these particularly gifted and imaginative ethnic groups in the area. Most weapons like something out of a science fiction movie and adopt fascinating shapes and patterns.
The territory of Katanga has important copper mines that allowed Songye to make many objects in this matter.

I first engraved the fine geometric pattern that was on the blade of this African ax before trace and cut out the shape.

Polished. Shiny.

They are 6.5 cm (2.559 inches).

Size of the African ceremonial ax: 4.6 x 4.8 cm (1.811 x 1.890 inches).

As we currently dwell in Mexico, provide a period of 2 to 5 weeks to receive your order. Thank you for taking this information into account before ordering in our shop (please, read the complete conditions of shipping here).

I hope you will love this jewel as much as I enjoyed creating it.
