Using my various stamps and tools, I cut and textured this hamsa shape, then fired it to bisque. After taking it out of the kiln, I glazed it with lead-free green glaze and high fired it again in my kiln at my studio. I added a pretty butterfly pendant and finished it with beads on a hemp cord for hanging. My initials and the item number are carved on the back of the hamsa.

Ships worldwide from California, USA The hamsa hand is an ancient Middle Eastern amulet that protects against the “evil eye.” It is a protective sign and brings its owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune. Five (hamesh in Hebrew) represents the five books of the Torah for Jews. In the Jewish religion, the Jewish hamsa hand also symbolizes the Hand of Miriam, the sister of Moses and Aaron. Although the hamsa hand has been symbolic in Islam and Judaism for centuries, archaeological digs provide evidence that the hamsa predates these religions and originated with the Phoenicians.
