Carnelian and Silver Circle Pendant and Necklace

$ 500.00

This striking necklace is hand crafted in  Niger by Elhadji and the Koumama family collective of artists. They use ancient techniques that begin with melting pure 99.9% silver over charcoal fires to form the individual beads. The pendant is complemented by the faceted carnelian and silver necklace.  Free-hand engraved symbols are added to the pendant with only simple tools like the file and screw driver. Necklace is topped off with a strong comfortable silver hook clasp.

Dimensions: Necklace measures approximately 13 inches long and the pendant is 2 1/2 inches in diameter.

“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
