Tapered Silver Cuff

$ 150.00

Utilizing ancient Tuareg traditions the artisans of the Koumama family collective lead by patriarch Elhadji melt pure 99.9% silver using simple charcoal fires stoked by goat skin hand bellows. In this classic 4 sided cuff each side is rounded and filed then detail is added with engraving using hand tools like a screwdriver. Symbols represent elements of daily Tuareg life and their surroundings. Circles can represent the sun or water wells along your path. Rounded end-tips create a comfortable fit and ease in wear.  

Dimension: 1/4 an inch wide at center, can be delicately adjusted to fit most wrists


“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
