Handmade clay hamsa with flowers and berries

Clay Hamsa with floral motif

I would like to show you my new clay Hamsa. Hamsa is a charm in the shape of hand that is said to protect against the "evil eye". In Arabic hamsa means five. For this Hamsa I used Keramikal material, as always. I made it using the method I described in my previous post about Hamsa. It's decorated with flowers, leaves and bugs, too, although the design is different. For some reason I like the bunches of brightly red berries on it :) The hanger is made of macramé. You can read more about Hamsa in Wikipedia.
