The Tuareg people are a large berber ethnic confederation. They principally inhabit the Sahara in a vast area stretching from far southwestern Libya to southern Algeria, Niger, Mali and Burkina Faso Traditionally nomadic pastoralists, small groups of Tuareg are also found in northern Nigeria.

I have used these brass cube beads with the corners cut off for many years and I always just call them African Brass beads. My background is in cultural anthropology so I am always interested in the culture that I buy my beads from . I thought I would highlight the Tuareg with this bracelet. The beads are 5mm in diameter . (there is also a large version of this bracelet on my site). I have also added, epidote pyrite, garnet, carnelian, sapphire, labradorite, ruby, turquoise and pyrite. When I was making it last night I was overwhelmed and made 3 different styles. Not sure which one I loved the best so I have added a photo of the other choices. If you prefer a different one, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org when placing the order. Thanks!
