Necklace with Hamsa and Ben Porat Yosef Engraving from Shraga Landesman
This necklace by Israeli artist Shraga Landesman features a passage from Genesis and a large hamsa symbol, both of which are believed to protect the wearer against the evil eye.
This necklace is made of shining nickel-silver with a long chain for wearing, hook-eye clasp, and dark blue and turquoise colored beads. A passage from the book of Genesis (49:22) is cut into the pendant, which is the words Jacob recited to Joseph before his death. The passage is one that is believed to protect one against the evil eye, as well as the hamsa, which holds the same meaning.
Give this as a thoughtful gift for a Bat Mitzvah or special occasion of a friend or relative!
