…but first a little bit of history and explanation …

When we started this journey to and in Niger, we offered you inexpensive Tamajaq (from the Tahoua region) jewelry.  It was not pure silver, but an alloy.  As God has moved us around and we’ve formed more relationships, we have come to love and prefer the PURE SILVER jewelry from the Agadez region.  When we came to the States this summer, we brought a bit of this jewelry with us to sell to you at great prices – the same price as you would pay if you walked into the shop in Niamey and purchased the jewelry directly from the artisans.  These artisans have become our dearest friends and family when we are in our home-away-from home.  We love and respect them and are awed at the rustic processes used to create these pieces.  It is a privilege to learn from them the ancient arts of jewelry-making.  Their work is impeccable and each piece is unique.  When you purchase this jewelry, you help support families in Niger and enable the artisans to continue practicing their craft.
