Handmade Sterling Silver Ear-wires with the Hand of Hamsa and Tribal Hoops in Antiqued Tibetan Silver. For the Tribal/Gypsy/Fusion Bellydancer, BoHo Chic or Temple Goddess. These delicately detailed hoops, have the look of old Hill Tribe earrings but they are much lighter, being made from Tibetan Silver. This an updated version of my Hamsa earrings using a different style of chain than in my first version.

*The cast pewter hoops have a raised & filigree design on the front, the reverse is plainer and flat, with a speckled texture design (as shown in 1 of the photos)*

The Hamsa
The Hamsa is a palm-shaped amulet popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa, and commonly used in jewellery and wall hangings. Depicting the open right hand, an image recognized and used as a sign of protection in many societies throughout history, the Hamsa is believed to provide defence against the evil eye.
Early use of the Hamsa has been traced to ancient Mesopotamia. A universal sign of protection, the image of the open right hand is seen in Mesopotamian artefacts in the amulets of the Qāt Ištar /Inana. Other symbols of divine protection based around the hand include the Hand-of-Venus (or Aphrodite), the Hand-of-Mary that was used to protect women from the evil eye, boost fertility and lactation, promote healthy pregnancies, and strengthen the weak, and in the Buddha's gesture (mudrā) of teaching and protection.

Variations/findings

Hand made 925 Sterling Silver ear wires come as standard on these earrings.
Earrings suitable for- pierced ears and because of the gypsy hoop style findings these earrings are also suitable to wear through gauged flesh tunnels.
Due to the integral design of the ear findings a direct swap for non-pierced finding is not available. But if you like this design I could make you something very similar with a non-pierced finding. Please convo me if you are interested.
