Default North african pectoral-pendant ?- camel silver whip

Hello and Happy New Year everybody !!!!

I just came back from Algeria and bought these two items:

an ( old ?) camel whip ( with silver handle ? Origin ? )
and a big pectoral-pendant.

The pendant is really big: 10,6 inches long with stones.
The seller told me some people wear it on a necklace in the south ( touaregs...)
but it's really bigger and different than the usual pendants we found there (
southern Tuareg cross...)

By the size, maybe ( I guess ) a decoration for horse or camel / dromedary ?

What do you think ?

Kind regards

Francky

For the pendant,
there is a mark-stamp ( but maybe only a scratch, signature of the craftman ? ).

and two other pictures of the whip handle

As you found, the pendant is Yomud Turkmen work.
The crop is Gaucho, from Argentina or Uruguay.
