Product Description

Life for the dessert nomad is exceedingly perilous. Faced with almost unbearable weather conditions, deadly tribal rivalries and malevolent supernatural forces, one can easily see how the Tuareg value items that are believed to bring about good fortune and well being. Highly religious and superstitious, they tend to carry small biblical verses and articles of luck on their person. Their amulets and lucky jewelry possessions are all inscribed with old ancestral Berber etchings and constructed in specific geometrical shapes that provide protection to the wearer. The very metal that theses medallions are formed from silver, is considered to be fortuitous and blessed. This uniquely designed pendant has been crafted in the shape of a the honored chieftains’ tent. The sterling silver selection has been highlighted by 3 smooth ebony wood ash sections. The pendant is positioned upon a black beaded chain with 4 silver cylinder adornments. The pure silver smooth back of the pendant features the outline of a Tuareg traditional chiefs’ tent along with our jewelers' personal mark. The entire one of a kind ensemble has a good, heavy, solid feel. A silver lobster claw lock forms the closure. This pendant was NOT mass produced in a factory outside of Africa like so many shamefully are today. This pendant was hand crafted, by a jeweler, in the country of Niger.
