Details

By Maria Belen Nilson, this pendant takes the form of an amulet known as the "hamsa," which means "five" in Arabic. It is considered a defense against the evil eye. Popular in Jewish culture, its five fingers can represent the five books of the Torah and the fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, which represents one of the holy names of God. It is also a reminder to praise God with all five senses. Crafted of sterling silver mined in Taxco, the pendant is worn on a silver chain.

The eye in hand is such an original and fun pendant. There are so many of Marias pieces that I have on my wishlist. She is an amazing artist.

I had already purchased the companion necklace and wanted the bracelet to use as a bracelet but also to extend the length of the necklace. It perfect so many ways.
