Tuareg Moroccan Tribal Necklace
The large pendant on this African tribal jewelry necklace was
handcrafted by a nomadic Tuareg artisan using silver and crystal.
The linear designs etched into the silver represent important
creatures within the Tuareg social group – both animal and human.
The chain is black crystal with silver spacers.
A simple metal clasp completes the back.
The African Tuareg consist of widely dispersed
nomadic tribes known for their great noble bearing.
They are said to refer to themselves as the “First People,”
claiming to have inhabited their region for eons, and well
before all others – a claim, incidentally, that history supports.
The Tuareg are undisputed masters of the desert,
skillfully venturing where others could not survive.
Men and women hold equal rank with Tuareg society.
