The Azel Collection | Distinctive, Handcrafted Sterling Silver Tuareg Jewelry

The Tuareg Silversmiths of Azel  have been designing and executing superb fine sterling silver jewelry for countless generations. Azel is located in northern Agadez (Niger) - a fairly daunting distance from hospitals and other support.   

That is why Mohammed Anou, a renowned Tuareg silversmith, grouped his fellow artisans together to form the basis of this remarkable jewelry - The Azel Collection. Mohammed hopes the collective's beautiful jewelry will benefit his beloved town of Azel - and help it's people! 

Tuareg jewelry is distinctive, dramatic and meaningful.

There is a history and a story behind each piece and the traditional Tuareg motifs convey this in an intriguing way.

Mohammed holds a traditional Chat Chat Necklace in this picture.  In Tuareg culture, this necklace is similar to an engagement ring. When a man wishes to ask a woman to marry him, he gives her this necklace. Her acceptance and wearing of the necklace conveys the message that they are now engaged.

Rather lovely, we think!
