Turquoise and Silver Bead Tuareg 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 silver beads that take a full day to create. The necklace is eye-catching with turquoise beads and is topped off with a strong comfortable silver hook clasp.
Dimensions: Necklace measures approximately 19" from end to end.
