African Tuareg Tribal Jewelry Pendant Necklace

The Tuareg are a nomadic people who wander freely across the borders of the various desert nations in North Africa. 

Because of the extreme desert heat during the day, they frequently travel at night, using familiar stars as a reliable compass. 

This pendant was designed with the pattern of the northern star and 4-directions, as a symbolic guide.

About TUAREG: The African Tuareg consist of widely dispersed nomadic tribes known for their great noble bearing. They are said to refer to themselves as the "First People," claiming to have inhabited their region for eons, and well before all others - a claim, incidentally, that history supports. 

The Tuareg are undisputed masters of the desert, skillfully venturing with aplomb where others could not survive. Men and women hold equal rank with Tuareg society.
