This is the perfect pendant when you need a little luck!

West Africans believe talismans help ward off evil and bring good fortune. Designed by Vicky Chignall, the brass hand of Fatima and turquoise scarab beetle anchor various other good luck charms and trade beads on a braided leather cord. The ancient Egyptians believed a giant scarab pushed the world round, it is seen as a symbol of rebirth or regeneration. The Hand of Fatima is named after the Muslim prophet Muhammad's favorite daughter- the symbol is consistent throughout ancient religions as a sign of luck or protection. It is known as Hand of Mary in Christianity and Hand of Miriam in Judaism. They are said to bring good luck to the wearer.

The leather cord measures about 26 inches in circumference and the pendant drops about 3 inches, the necklace fastens with an “S” hook closure.
