Hamsa Hand Nazar Bead Pendant
Hamsa hand hangs below an “Evil Eye” Naxar bead, on an 18” chain with a 2” extender.
The Hamsa Hand, or Hand of Miriam, is effective in warding off the influence of envious gazing. Anyone who wears it receives protection from the EVIL EYE. It also creates positive energy, happiness, prosperity & good health. The Hamsa (root means "five") symbolizes the Creator’s protective hand. This amulet is an ancient symbol of an opened hand with a palm & five outstretched fingers. The hamsa or "protecting hand" is a way of averting & getting protection from the evil eye, or in general, as a way of summoning assistance from the "Hand of G-d". It is also helpful to wear or display such an amulet from a totally practical point of view - to remind oneself of our own fragility & weaknesses, & to help us reflect upon this realization in our day-to-day thoughts, speech & actions.
