|Sterling Silver, Copper, and Gemstone Necklace - (Hand of Hamsa Amulet)
A stunning and one-of-a-kind, gypsy, chunky, colorful, statement necklace!!
This will seriously become your favorite piece to wear, the feel and weight of it, the
gorgeous colors of the rainbow, in so many beautiful gemstones will be sure to accent
The necklace has such a spiritual feel to me, with having all the colors of the Chakra
in the design, along with all the energies of each gemstone, and the meaning behind
the "Hamsa" amulet.
The Hamsa amulet is popular throughout North Africa, and commonly
used in jewelry and wall hangings. The Hand (Khamsa), 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.
It is also known as the hand of Fatima, so named to commemorate
Muhammad's daughter Fatima Zahra. Christians call it the hand of Mary,
for the mother of Jesus. Following its incorporation into Jewish tradition
via its widespread use in the Islamic world, it was also renamed the hand
of Miriam for Miriam, sister of Moses.
The Hamsa Amulet pendant is my own original design, entirely hand wire-worked by
me in an intricate pattern with copper wire, using Gemstones and Sterling Silver
beads and spacers.
The necklace is loaded with more gemstone beads, Sterling silver bead caps and
spacers, and a few copper beads.
The necklace measures 22 and 1/4 inches in length, from tip of clasp, to end of tassel
pendant which hangs form the chain.
A 1 and 1/2 inch length of Sterling silver chain is included in the entire measurement,
which allows the clasp to hook anywhere along this length to shorten the necklace if
The clasp is a nice chunky sterling silver lobster clasp, that has a comfortable swivel
hook so the necklace will never get twisted while wearing.
There are three Sterling silver tassels hanging from the chain end. One has a
beautiful Quartz gemstone bead infused with Citrine, the second one has colors of the
Chakra with gemstones including: Iolite, Green Aveturine, Citrine, Carnelian, and
Garnet. The third tassel is a Magnestie Stone Heart.

tassels, and necklace portion are as follows, (I have included one or two of the
attributes for each stone):
