Mid 20th century, Tuareg (a large Berber group mostly of the Sahara)
The Tuareg are the largest ethnic group among the Berber and therefore their arts are widely recognized and reproduced. The real material is now hard to find and though this silver amulet is not very old it is a true beauty. It hangs pendant on our hand finest hand woven cord, a full day’s work
One of kind
Amulet: 2.75 x 2″
Cord length: 23″
A note about our woven cords. We weave these by hand, every one of them. Like all Jewels’ work no two are exact, as each of us. The work is labor intensive. When warmed to the skin the cord becomes more supple, conforms to the wearer, hangs at it should; the necklace transforms more than just a necklace. It becomes her or him.
