These bells are made by Janmamad Luhar in the Kutchch desert region of western India. Janmamad Luhar employs an ancient technique of bell-making, passed on to him through generations. The bells are formed from sheets of recycled steel. They are beaten into shape by hand, then dipped in copper.
Women make a dough that they pat around the bells; the bells are then buried under the hot desert sand in a kiln. The heat anneals the metals, welding them into bronze, giving each piece its unique patina. After firing, each bell is individually hand-tuned by Mr. Luhar. This is what truly makes each of these pieces unique! We offer these bells in six different sizes.

Approximate heights of the bells:

Size 0 = 1.35"
Size 2 = 2.25"
Size 3 = 2.45"
Size 4 = 3"
Size 6 = 4"
Size 7 = 4.75" The price is for ONE bell. The photograph of the bells together is to show the size differences between them. Made in Gujerat, India.
