This Tuareg cross necklace is handmade, with simple engraving decorating the long design. Mid-weight onyx beads interspersed with silver tube beads lead to a hand-engraved silver alloy pendant with ebony and silver stacked in the signature Tuareg style. Not a commonly seen design, a bit like a Tilya cross. 

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.
