You'll really be impressed with the fine detailing on this piece. A large silver oval has been lovingly crafted with intricate tribal designs chased into the surface. In the center is a large solid brass eye shape, around which are hundreds of tiny lines surrounded by another eye shape and even more lines creating the effect of eyelashes. Very nicely done.
Small onyx beads interspersed with embellished silver tube beads lead to the hand-engraved silver alloy pendant. The detailing and unique design of this Tuareg necklace make it a real standout. You will truly feel the powerful energy emanating off of this pendant!
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.
