Abayomi means born to bring me joy.

The black Abayomi necklace is like all our jewellery made from recycled paper and therefore super light in weight and super comfortable. This necklace comes with a silver Agadez cross from the Tuareg, the so called blue people from the Sahara. The cross is the most important piece of jewellery for a Tuareg and not religious in any way. It is created by the so called lost wax method. There are 21 different crosses which represent the different tribes and areas across Niger, they were often used to trade between the Tuareg Nobles and Inadan. The Agadez cross is traditionally given by a father to his son when he becomes 15 years old, as a symbolic reminder of the Tuareeg nomadic life style. When a boy becomes a man he is free to travel anywhere he wishes and this cross is there to help him find his way at times of confusion, distress or fdiccultiy, throughout the four directions of the world; represented by the four points of the cross. Wear this necklace as form of good luck and protection.
