Depicting an Open Hand, the Hamsa is a palm shaped amulet believed by many cultures throughout time to provide protection and defense against the evil eye, and also represents blessings, power, and strength. Early use of the Hamsa has been traced all the way back to ancient Mesopotamia.
This charm, intended to be worn on a necklace with other pieces or individually, is carved from abalone and mother of pearl shell layered together and set in sterling silver. It hangs approximately 1.25” long & .75” across and can be worn on either side. Due to the natural variation in the shell color from which each piece is carved, as well as the hand of the individual artist who carved it, expect slight variation from the piece photographed above. In this, each talisman is unique and one-of-kind, and will be specific to the one who possesses it.
