Small Hamsa Hand Necklace, Seed Beads
This hand-threaded necklace has the smallest hamsa hand bead attached.
The bead is hand-cast here in Australia. It is super cute and had an embossed spiral on both sides. The spiral has been associated with the journey of life, the cycle of time and the seasons.
For the necklace, I threaded small Czech glass seed beads in pastel colours with a stainless steel lobster claw clasp and a tiny star charm.
The necklace measures 50cm in length.
* The Hamsa symbol is found in several cultures throughout the Middle East and Northern Africa. It is believed to be a symbol of protection; the symmetrical hand with five fingers also symbolizes the power of the number five.
The hand, particularly the open right hand, is a sign of protection that also represents blessings, power and strength, and is seen as potent in deflecting the evil eye.
