Delicate hoops in bronze gilded with fine gold, entirely shaped and engraved by hand.
In the Sahara, patterns and jewelry often have magical powers. For the Tuaregs, the Woodabe Peulhs, each small object hanging on the body carries a meaning, a history, a force that protects them, gives them courage to face the desert.
I was inspired by these talismans to design the "Les Grigris" collection. These loops take the shape of the little necklaces of the young girls, the "tchatchat" which form these corollas.
