Necklace composed of a khomessa pendant, 2 pastilles and a square bronze amulet gilded with fine gold, beige and pink glass beads and a kori on a twisted beige silk link.
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 a khomessa: a Tuareg symbol presenting the 5 Tuareg brotherhoods, the 5 fingers of the protective hand. I hung round pastilles with a star in them, a kori and glass beads. I hope that with all this it will bring you luck!
