TUAREG JEWELRY

Niger, West Africa

This solid silver and nickel jewelry is made by a clan of 69 Tuareg jewelers in central Niger. All of the jewelry is handcrafted using ancient metal-working techniques.

The Tuareg are traditional nomads of the Sahara Desert and renown silversmiths. Each piece is meticulously engraved with their motifs and represents a thousand years of history.
