A month or so ago, I stumbled upon Etsy shop & jewellery maker Maldemer.
After a while of browsing her lovely handmade, vintage designs I instantly, I fell in love with the 'tiny silver sideways hamsa' necklace. It was perfect; discreet, sleek, won't make your neck go green and all for a cheap price of $27 / £18.
I had to have it!
Unluckily for me (but fantastic for Elisabeth!) this necklace was featured, unbeknownst to me, on a popular uk fashion blog which made sales go through the roof! Although, Elisabeth was such a great seller, she kept in contact the whole way and reserved the product for me. I was added on to a waiting list and within a couple of weeks the necklace arrived.
I'm new to Etsy but love the idea of buying unique handmade crafts, this was my first purchase and it couldn't have gone any better!
I'm really pleased with the necklace, I love what the hamsa symbol signifies (protection - blessings, power, strength) and a lot of people have commented on how lovely it is. I'll definitely be doing lots more Etsy shopping soon!
And if silver isn't your thing, there are lots of other alternatives available from different sellers!
