Antique Moroccan Hamsa on Hand-Knotted Rutilated Quartz
While this quartz was forming underground it trapped many "needles" of black tourmaline giving it a unique graffiti effect. Each faceted bead is hand-knotted to create a 20 inch necklace holding a very special antique pendant. The old Moroccan hamsa has clearly had many lives and if it could talk would tell some interesting stories I am certain. A 3 inch drop, this pendant is a hamsa, or hand, which is worn as an amulet to ward off evil. It is hand tooled with floral motifs.
