The Hamsa hand has long been one of my favourite symbols. The palm-shaped amulet is believed to ward of the “evil eye” and represents blessings, power and strength. As a believer, I have worn a Hamsa bracelet everyday for the past 4 years. So much so that it has become one of my signature symbols. And over that time, my collection of Hamsa jewelry has grown so that I can mix things up with my other jewelry.
The two newest pieces to join my collection are this necklace and bracelet. I came across these in a shop on Mont Royal street in Montreal. They had so many different styles of Hamsa jewelry, and although I could have bought many more, I was reasonable enough to just choose two.
Do you have any signature symbols?
