Handmade Lapis Lazuli Intaglio Bead Telsum Necklace with Antique Tuareg Tcherot Amulet
Overall Length: 23.5″
Wrapped in blue indigo dyed cloth called tagelmoust, the adult males of the semi-nomadic NW Saharan Tuareg tribes excelled in multiple metal smithing and leather jewelry. These handcrafted elegant amulets were worn around necks or tied to the blue veils or familial tents to ward off evil, hatred, and disease. The fine hand etched designs in this silver amulet are a wonderful cultural example of Tuareg jewelry making skill. Assembled with stunning lapis lazuli intaglio and telsum beads, an unusual accessory is born.
