Description

The hand is the most frequently symbolised part of the human body. It represents generosity and hospitality. In the Levant, it has long been related to warding off the evil eye. This hand pendant is one unique way to showcase this symbolism. It is available in silver & gold plated silver.

Care instructions

Clean non-plated silver using a soft cloth with mild dish soap and warm water. Rinse and rub gently until dry.

ABOUT THE CRAFT

JEWELLERY MAKING

Jewellery is one of the most revealing art forms - it tells us how people view themselves and what they value in the world. In the Levant, it has a very long and rich history dating back to the 3rd millennium B.C. Among the oldest examples of jewellery are those found in Queen Pu-abi’s tomb at Ur in Sumer, now called Tall al-Muqayyar in Iraq. Sumerian jewellery has inspired much of the forms that have been developed since. Although its making techniques have somewhat changed since the time of the Sumerians, many have remained unchanged.

At Turquoise Mountain Jordan, we aim to preserve these techniques through our training programmes and collaborations with local and international designers.
