This simple modern necklace is made from a Vintage brass bar that has been hand shaped, polished and hammered into an arc shape. Five vintage stick charms mixed with geometric spacer beads dangle underneath. The 18" figaro chain closes in the back with a spring ring clasp. If you choose the 22" snake chain version instead, it simply slips over the head without a clasp. Handmade in New York.
This piece was named "hamsa" because if you look at the pendant it resembles a minimalist, downward facing hand. The hamsa is an ancient Middle Eastern amulet symbolizing the Hand of God. In all faiths it is a protective sign. It brings it's owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune.
