“Hamsa” protection

This is a Hamsa , Hamesh or Hand of Fatima. It is an apotropic amulet of protection .  It is believed to protect one from the envious and/or  the evil eye. The word Hamsa means 5, refers to the digits of the hand. I thought it was a very nice amulet that needed to be beaded. I had fun doing this one, working with the bright colors cheered me up on the rainy days. Yes, we had 3 days of rain in North Pole. Great to have some rain, plus I had beading time. Hope you enjoy this one.
