TUAREG Veil Weights, Niger
Famous for their jewelry, the Tuareg employ the same elaborate aesthetic when fashioning their inventive veil weights which are used by women to hold their headcloths in place. These assrou n' swoul, which resemble the large decorative keys of camel saddlebag locks, are forged from geometric layers of silver, brass and copper.
The backs are smooth and plain.
