AGADEZ CROSS NECKLACE
Small crosses of Agadez shaped and chiseled by hand in bronze then gilded with fine gold.
In the Sahara, patterns and jewelry often have magical powers. For the Tuaregs, the Woodabe Peulhs, each small object hanging on the body carries a meaning, a history, a force that protects them, gives them courage to face the desert.
I was inspired by these talismans to design the "Les Grigris" collection. This pendant takes the shape of the famous cross of Agadez. I put a little swallow in the center, an important symbol at Ombre Claire.
Composition, sizes, weight:
Bronze gilded with 24 carat fine gold.
Weight: 2.6 grams.
Gilded with fine gold by a Parisian craftsman.
The cross is mounted on a pure indigo silk tie with small glass beads and a leather tassel made entirely by hand by a craftswoman from Agadez.
At Ombre Claire, the greatest luxury is the delicacy given to small things, the delicacy of the lines, the carving, the care taken in the choice of materials. Elegance comes from the material, from the knowledge of shared know-how and from the respect shown to all those who participate in the adventure.
Ombre Claire is committed to an ethical and fair approach from one end of the production chain to the other.
