The Tuareg people have been crafting silver jewelry for more than 25 generations.  Each mark and shape holds significant meaning.

The Iférouane Cross references the Iférouane region, an oasis town in Northern Nigeria.  The Four points of the cross are representative of the four corners of the world, and these types of amulets are passed from a father to a son around the age of 15 when the boy becomes a man and is able to travel freely anywhere he desires.
