Etched Tuareg Drop Earrings

Reduced price $90 $59.99

Highly skilled silver jewellers of the Saharan north and west Africa create each work of wearable art, an important tradition of the Tuareg nomads for centuries. The production techniques have changed little over the years. Using a lost-wax method to cast the silver, makers first create a wax mold, form clay around the mold and pour molten silver into the hardened clay. Using hand tools, they etch traditional designs and add ebony inlay or jewels to create the finished piece.
