Amethyst and Silver Beads Necklace

$ 1,500.00

The elegant Amethyst and Silver Beads 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 individually form each silver bead used to create this necklace. Engraving detail is added using only simple tools like the file and screwdriver.  Each hand crafted silver bead takes the artists one hour to make.  Beautifully polished amethyst beads are situated between four large silver beads and the largest, silver bead pendant for an exquisite finish. Nests comfortably at most necklines and closes with a simple silver hook clasp at the back.

Dimensions: Necklace measure 24 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
