A golden sparrow with 3 desert bells.
The bronze bells are handmade in India using ancient techniques passed down through generations. Starting with sheets of recycled steel, a bell shape is formed and dipped in copper. The unique patina on the bell surface is created by burying each bell under the hot desert sand in a kiln, where the heat anneals the metals, welding them into bronze. After firing, each bell is individually hand-tuned, creating the perfect sound.
