Chat Chat Necklace with Blue Glass

$ 100.00

Practicing 1,000 year old traditions the master Tuareg silversmiths of the Koumama family collective in Niger use charcoal stoked by goat skin bellows to melt pure 99.9% silver and then form it into classic shapes and decorate with free hand engraving of traditional Niger motifs. This playful silver petal necklace is made up triangle shaped petals, the symbol of good luck in Niger, engraved with traditional designs, and are accented with silver and onyx beads. Colorful glass is cut into the same triangular form and can coordinate with either the Deep Blue Ingal or Chat Chat Silver Petal Earrings.

Necklace measure 18 inches long.

“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
