Alex Silver Earrings

$ 150.00

These beautiful Alex silver earrings are handmade in Niger by the expert silversmiths of Tuareg Jewelry. The artists start with 99.99% pure silver and melt it down using a mold to form these earrings. Then they use a screwdriver and hammer for incising the intricate designs onto the silver. The Alex earrings feature traditional motifs from Niger representing community life. The triangle shape is featured in this earring and is a traditional symbol in Niger for good luck. The earrings are finished by sanding and polishing the silver for a stunning finish.

“Each piece of Tuareg jewelry helps provide the artisans with the blessings of food and culture and the wearer of the jewelry a sense of beauty and pride.” 
- Elhadji Koumama of Tuareg Jewelry, Niger
