Silver Cross Earrings

$ 125.00

These beautiful silver earrings are handmade in Niger by the expert silversmiths of Tuareg Jewelry. The artists start with 99.99% pure silver and melt it down using a mold to form these earrings. Then they use a screwdriver and hammer for incising the intricate designs onto the silver. The Silver Cross earrings incorporate traditional motifs from Niger representing community life. The triangles present in the Silver Cross earrings represent good luck. The earrings are finished by sanding and polishing the silver for a stunning finish.

“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
