Description

Crescents of silver shine like a desert moon, suspended on a strand of black onyx beads. Gracefully designed in the tradition of Tuareg ceremonial jewelry. The Tuareg are found in Burkina Faso, Niger, Mali and Chad. Traditionally nomadic herders of the North and West African deserts, some Tuareg now cultivate crops in fertile oases, or work as traders.
