Moussa Albaka - Tuareg Silversmith
From the young age of 10, Moussa Albaka was taught the art of Tuareg silversmithing and jewelry making from his father and grandfather. His family has been involved in silversmithing for many generations, as well as camel caravan trading throughout the Sahara Desert. Their jewelry is 95 percent silver and is made by a wax process that takes hours to complete.
He has won the UNESCO award for artistic excellence with his work.
