Tuareg Carnelian, Inlaid Black Coral necklace
Elegant, simple, and jam-packed with history.
The central pendant is silver and carnelian, made by the Tuareg tribe in West Africa. I picked it up in Mali.
The spectacular black beads are antique black coral, inlaid with silver, turquoise, and coral. I found these in a bazaar in Cairo, Egypt.
