The molten metal, usually silver, is then poured into the space that the "lost wax" has left empty. The cross is then filed, polished and engraved by the blacksmith.The teneghelt are sometimes worn alone, sometimes in several copies. Women and young girls then thread their favorite crosses on fine leather or cotton cords and thus make a personalized necklace.The Agades cross consists of a suspension ring, taganzé "the opening", provided with "ears", chimuzugen. The diamond part is called udum "the face". The points on the left and on the right are "the shoulders", ijiran. The central motif is a circle in the center of a fluted ring, "the eye of the chameleon", chatt n tawt; this one is surrounded by four small circles representing "the traces of the jackal", adiriz n agur.There are 21 different models of crosses Each cross is the symbol of a city and makes it possible to know the origin of the people who wear it. It is difficult to be categorical about their origin. There are several hypotheses as to the origin of the cross of Agades. One of them sees in it the memory of a Christian past of the Berber people. This symbol would be found in the shape of the pommel of the camel saddle. According to certain studies, the Tuareg crosses, transmitted from father to son, could also symbolize the 4 cardinal points: “My son, I give you the four corners of the world, because we cannot know where we will die”. Several are worn by men and women around the neck with a leather or cotton tie These silver crosses are made by the blacksmiths of Agades using the lost wax technique. gsrxvers1151 (GS 8.0.11 (1151))For the Tuaregs, the cross is a jewel called teneghelt (after enghel, to pour) which evokes the manufacturing process.An earthen mould, made from a wax model, is fired after recovering the heated wax.
