Handmade Silver, red coral and enamel hand of Fatima pendant from Algeria


This unique Kabyle/Berber hand of fatima pendant is purely handmade by an Algerian artisan using pure silver 950¸ mediterranean red coral and colourful enamel. You sometimes get imperfections in their jewellery; that is because they are done separately by hand; which gives it the real sense of the Handmade. It could take them hours to make one single piece of art such as this one. It is made with passion and love to the culture. The artisans are only using pure products.

 

Meaning of Hand of Fatima:
The Khamsa or Hamsa¸ (in Hebrew: “Khamsa” in Arabic: Hamsa means “five”) is an
icon in amulets¸ charms¸ and Jewellery¸ to protect against evil eyes.
An Islamic alternative name for this charm : “Eye of Fatima or the hand of
Fatima” ¸ regarding to Fatima Zahra¸ Prophet Muhammad’s daughter. The other
meaning in Jewish is Miriam’s hand ¸ as regards Miriam¸ the sister of Aaron and
Moses. It is a sort of “protection of the hand” or “The hand of God“.
It symbolizes also the five books of the Torah to Jews and the Five Pillars of
Islam for Sunni Muslims. 
In recent years¸ several peace activists in the Middle East¸ have chosen to wear
resistance Hamsa the symbol of the origin and the similarities between the
Jewish and Islamic tradition. The fingers may point up or down.
