The Hamsa is a talismanic symbol that is believed to protect you from harm against the evil forces. This beautiful pendant was pierced, and stamped with an eccentric array of designs, creating a small work of art. A light amethyst is set in the center, representing the eye, also a symbol of protection. On the back of the pendant I stamped the work "flow". For me, this is a reminder to let life flow. The good with the bad. The highs with the lows. It all makes up a life. The pendant hangs on a silver rolo chain. It measures 22-23" with lobster clasp and adjustable length chain closure. Sterling silver.
