Hamsa, Chamsa, khamsa embroidered iron on patch turquoise and black
Embroidered Hamsa patch is 2.5 by 3.5 inches, and has iron on backing.
The hamsa is popular as a charm most often worn as a necklace, but can be found as a decorative element in houses, on key chains, on other jewelry items. Many artists use the image of the hamsa hand in jewelry, paintings, sculptures, wall decorations, and amulets.
The khamsa is the most popular of the different amulets to ward off the evil eye in Egypt - others being the Eye, and the Hirz (a silver box containing verses of the Koran).The Hand (Khamsa) has long represented blessings, power and strength and is thus seen as potent in deflecting the evil eye. It's one of the most common components of jewelry in the region.

As usual with every item I buy from this shop it is in excellent condition and looks great. I have pieces I have bought years ago, they are in my car on the dash and do not fade they still look brand new. They are mailed quickly as well, you cannot go wrong shopping from lizmiera!
