Khamsa, which means ‘five’ in Arabic, refers to a hand-shaped amulet that has been used for ages as a sign of protection against the ‘evil eye’. Judaism, Christianity & Islam, recognize what the ‘Khamsa’ symbolizes, although it predates all three of them.

When the COVID-19 pandemic struck earlier in 2020, millions of people across the globe suddenly found themselves stuck at home. And with social-distancing mandates in place, many have taken up new hobbies and I am one of them! However, my new pandemic-era hobby was an unexpected surprise; it all started with an attempt to rearrange the stones in a necklace a friend made for me; the rest is history! I found a creative outlet in jewelry design; it connects me with the energy of each color and allows me to express myself without words! I have enjoyed this journey so far… I hope you enjoy my journey too!
