The hamsa is a palm-shaped amulet common throughout the Middle East and North Africa. Oftentimes it is incorporated in wall hangings and jewelry, especially as a defense against the evil eye.
Common belief holds that it originated in ancient practices associated with the Phoenicians of Carthage – the same people who introduced to the world, the color purple.
Now we generally see two different kinds of hamsa hands: there is the stylized hand with two symmetrical thumbs, and there are hamsa hands which are not symmetrical and shaped like actual hands. The hamsa hand may be worn with the fingers pointing either up or down.
The charm is most often worn as a necklace, but may be found as a decorative element in houses, key chains, or on other jewelry items. Many artists use this image in jewelry, sculptures, paintings, wall decorations, and amulets such as the leather hamsa bracelets found here.
So now you know about the famous hamsa charm – what is MIZZE?
MIZZE is among the fantastic designer lines carried at MostOriginal.com. They specialize in casual and everyday jewelry which is actually, "handmade for luck."
In their own words, the work is all:
"Inspired by the hectic times we live in and our need for some balance and the occasional spiritual reminder that everything is relative."
MIZZE is actually designed by an independent jewelry studio in Israel which combines traditional workmanship like weaving and knitting with ancient charms and symbols, creating contemporary designs in jewelry. The jewelry is made of all natural materials and, as engraved on these gold hamsa leather bracelets, is completely hand crafted.
