Having a jeweler as a friend (or is it having a friend as a jeweler?) has a lot of advantages. One being, you’ve got opportunities to have sneak peak and early purchase of her latest designs, before they are in the market. Here’s one of her designs.

I have been wanting to have Hamsa for a long, long time. It is also known as the hand of Fatima, or hand of Mary, or hand of Miriam. This palm-shaped amulet is known as a sign of protection in many societies throughout history. It is believed to provide protection against the evil eye.
I just love the beautiful shape. Whether it really protects you against bad intention, I think it goes back to what you believe in.
I thank my friend from Amedes who is finally able to source one for me 🙂
