Recycled vintage teaspoon earrings.
The exact origins of these ancient ‘hand’ symbols are unknown. Throughout the ages however, we know it is universal sign of protection throughout many cultures and beliefs. The hand of Hamsa is also referred as the Hand of Fatima. In all situations and beliefs the hand symbol is always employed in jewellery as a protective amulate, offering strength and courage in its wearer.
The designs are carefully hand drawn onto the surface of the recycled vintage teaspoon spoon. They are then embellished with a traditional jewellers saw. Each set is not only completely unique and original but also totally green and ethical.
Handcrafted and completely recycled in Cambridge, UK. Complete with the finest sterling silver earwires and the actual donor vintage teaspoon from which they were recycled.
Size : Approx 23 mm * 17 mm
