One necklace, made of zinc alloy components and Hamsa hand charms, accented with sparkling Czech glass beads and reproduction Arabic coins. The clasp is a nice big toggle that’s easy to grab onto and use.
The Hamsa hand–aka the Hand of Fatima–is a symbol of protection dating back to Mesopotamia. It still retains significance today in Arabic and Jewish cultures, among others.
The hand charms and small flower links may contain nickel, but the beads, caps, coins, and main links are nickel free.
But where would I wear it?
Wherever you want! It would put a neat accent on your ren faire or LARP garb, rock the “creative anachronism” angle of your SCA kit, add a layer of zing/elegance to a belly dance costume or formal dress–or hey, wear it out with jeans. Like a t-rex with a pick-up stick, you’d be unstoppable.
So how big is it?
The standard necklace is 17″, or 43cm. If you need it to be bigger or smaller, let me know–I can size it for you!
The center section, from top to bottom, is about 5″/12.7cm on all necklaces except the blue. (Since that center focal is bigger, it’s about 6″/15.24cm.)
