Moroccan Tiznit Berber Tribal Jewelry Necklace

This traditional African necklace was recently restrung in the Tribal Muse studios using old beads and a large vintage African Moroccan Cross pendant. 

The blue, green, and yellow enamel finish on the pendant is characteristic of Tiznit Berber jewelry from southern Morocco. 

The old beads along the sides are well-made Kashmiri silver-with-metal beads and resin disks in honey-amber tones, Red wooden beads and a sterling silver clasp complete the back. 

The African Moroccan cross is a traditional Berber design. It is said to symbolize the Southern Cross constellation which guides these nomadic Bedouin tribes through their nighttime journeys though the desert.
