A beautiful example of Tuareg artistry. This handmade Tuareg bracelet features a hand-engraved strip of silver down the middle of a wide ebony wood band. The band is encased entirely in silver and is signed using the artist's mark on the bottom.
The bracelet is quite old and is in very nice condition, with a very small ding to the side lower band. Wear is consistent with age and use. It is very unusual to find Tuareg bracelets of this style, and this is a real beauty!
The Tuareg originate from Mali, Algeria and Libya, but after travelling the Sahara Desert, a small group settled in the southern Moroccan Zagora province. Silver Sahara sources all our Tuareg items directly from descendants of the original settlers, ensuring that fair prices are paid.
All sales on Silver Sahara abide by fair trade principles, and benefit the native artisans to help ensure continuation of traditional craft techniques.
Handmade Tuareg bracelet; please allow for minor imperfections. Unrestored. Please inquire with any questions or for more pictures.
