Tuareg Hamsa Necklace
The Hamsa necklace is handcrafted in Niger by the master silversmiths of the Tuareg Koumama family collective. The artists start with 99.99% pure silver and melt it down to form the intricate design. Engraving detail is added using only simple tools like the file and screwdriver. The necklace is accented with silver and onyx beads. Lays comfortably at most necklines and closes with a simple silver hook clasp at the back.
Dimensions: Necklace measures approximately 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
