Eye to the Soul Turquoise and Silver Tuareg Pendant and Necklace
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 stunning turquoise and silver pendant is complemented by a matching turquoise and silver necklace. The eyehole in the pendant gives it a mystical feel. Free-hand engraved symbols are added to the pendant with only simple tools like the file and screw driver. The Necklace is topped off with a strong comfortable silver hook clasp.
Dimensions: Necklace measures approximately 12.5 inches long and the pendant is 3 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
