Hamsa Hands & Other Charms

Every culture throughout history has found images that serve as a source of comfort and protection. The Hand (Khamsa) has long represented blessings, power and strength and is thus seen as potent in deflecting the evil eye. It can be seen adorning walls in Catal Huyuk - a paleolithic site in southern Turkey. The Nazar or Evil Eye charm harks back to the even more ancient Eye of Horus. The Winged Heart calls to mind heavenly forces acting in our defense.

"In Karelia there was an ancient belief in the Sielulintu or Soul bird. It was believed the Sielulintu protected a person's soul at its most vulnerable when dreaming. It was tradition to keep a carved wooden bird by the bedside to keep the soul safe during sleep. Use this bird as a symbol of good luck, protection and happiness. To a happy soul!"
