"Lots of bad news from Mali in Africa this year: civil war, terrorism, destruction of historic artifacts and on and on. The good news is the Tuareg people who wander the deserts of the Sahel on their camels are still making beautiful sterling silver jewelry. Some of the best Tuareg work has found its way to S & A Beads in Takoma Park. Come see for yourself."
