Celebra Necklace of Sterling Silver and Onyx - by Tuareg artist Moussa Albaka

$395.00
Sterling silver and semi-precious stone necklace by famed Tuareg artisan Moussa Albaka.
The jewelry a Tuareg would adorn themselves with depended upon their sex, marital status and their position in society. A young girl would receive small ‘ear-drop’ earrings shortly after birth. As she reached puberty she would be allowed to wear bangles and anklets, as well as beaded jewelry. When she started courting she would don a chat- chat or celebra necklace, both of which were associated with young love and flirtation.

Created by Moussa Albaka, whom is well-known Tuareg tribesman and silversmith. Albaka has won the UNESCO award for artistic excellence in his work.

End to end: 20 1/4" x top to bottom: 10 3/4".
