Classic Agadez Engraved Pendant
This is one of our classic Azawagh pendants, made with astonishingly simple tools by outstanding smiths. Its cryptic symbols are often meaningful only to creator and wearer. They may represent a message, a story, or indicate a place. Engraved on the inside and outside, this pendant has two oval shaped, pointy interconnected loops finishing in the three-protuberant bigger piece at the end. It is approximately 7 centimetres (2.7 inches) long.
The engravings vary from piece to piece, creating a harmonious totality. The different patterns come to live thanks to the creativity and inspiration of the smiths who invent a unique combination of symbols every time they start working on a piece.
