Details

By Mexico's Roy Nilson, this beautiful necklace 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.

Handcrafted of sterling silver, the necklace showcases Taxco artistry.

"An incredible work of art!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This handcrafted cuff bracelet just arrived today. I can truly say the photo of this item does not do it justice. When I first opened the package my first thought was WOW! Such detail! The design is so spectacular! I couldnt wait to slip it on... Roy Nilson craftsmanship is a pleasure to behold. I especially loved the composition of the dancing couple. Viewing them puts a smile on my face! They are so precious! But most of all I love the passion Mr Roy put in his creation. I can see the love for his culture through his art. My family is from Mexico, as well. So I can relate to his passion.... This is one of three items I purchased from him, and I plan to purchase more in the future. Needless to say, Ive become a huge fan. Mr Roy, thank you for the honor to ware your gorgeous artwork!
