Been at the silver again...

Recommended Posts

Thought you might like to see my biggest silver smithing project to date- its statement pendant based on the Hamsa which means five in Arabic (in some countries it's called a Hand of Fatima). A hamsa is supposed to bring blessings & protection to its wearer.


The design of the bail with its tube and hinge effect is based on ideas I gleaned from old Omani jewellery but which proved a huge challenge to create. The reverse is not so highly polished but has a satin finish created very easily with a green pan scourer!
