This unique Tuareg necklace is composed of five bright yellow pendants, each wrapped in hand engraved silver. The pendants are made to resemble a simple child's pacifier, universal to all cultures. Small onyx beads interspersed with silver tube beads lead to the hand-engraved silver pendants with yellow. Attractive design in a not often seen color.

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.
