This hand cast brass hook has been lovingly made in Ghana, using traditional lost wax casting techniques, exclusively for us here at Artisans & Adventurers.
The Leopard & Lion hooks look great as a pair for hanging jewellery or tea towels around the house.
Please note that this listing is for one leopard hook only, you can find the lion hook here.
ARTISANS & VALUES
Hand cast in a small village outside Kumasi, Ghana by a family run workshop. The traditional craft of lost wax casting is handed down from generation to generation.
Materials: Recycled Brass
Sizing: 14cm x 4cm
Over time our recycled brass hooks will start to tarnish slightly. Some prefer the brass when it becomes darker and more earthy. However you may prefer to restore your hook to its original polished gold tone.
The best way to polish your hook is to use a brass polish, we suggest Brasso (Always follow the instructions on the bottle). If you don't have any brass polish to hand, or prefer a more natural alternative, cover half a lemon in salt and rub over the brass until you see the tarnish start to lift, rinse well and polish dry with a soft cloth.
Avoid prolonged contact with liquids and never spray with room sprays as this will cause the brass to tarnish quicker.
