Silver Dangle Earrings with Black Etching

$ 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 Dangle earrings incorporate traditional motifs from Niger representing community life.  The triangle shapes featured in these earrings is a traditional symbol in Niger for good luck and is accented by Ebony Inlay features. 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
