Remember the sideways Hamsa?

More dainty trinkets and sideways necklace action for you :)

I blogged about this necklace a few weeks ago when I sourced some pretty versions of a Hamsa on etsy. Etsy is such a goldmine for independent designers and maldemer was one of the shops that I linked to. I never bought anything from there myself but I know that many of you did.
 As a thank you I received my very own and received it this week. I have worn it every day since. It's one of those items that is so light in weight you completely forget you are wearing it but just like the sideways cross it catches the light and glimmers in all the right ways.

Plus it's a double whammy of protection - evil eye and Hamsa rolled all into one. That's efficiency :)

I love easy jewellery like this.

I don't like having to remove everything before I go to sleep or take a shower - yes, I am a bit lazy -  so having something delicate yet durable enough not to either:

a) Choke me or
b) Turn my neck green

...is a major plus! :)

I think you can request to get your own made - there may be a wait for this but it's worth it for the grand total of $28!

Here's the etsy store - Link!

PS. Flying back to Dubai tomorrow night - it's always bittersweet. Part of me will miss the UK and part of me is looking forward to getting back to my flat. I am so glad that I managed to schedule this break during a week of fantastic sunshine though - England in the sun cannot be beaten :)  



  1. I love the hamsa hand. I wear a little silver one around my wrist i got at a market in israel, but i love the sideways version you tend to rock :-)
    Have a great flight back to dubai!

  2. oh that is so cute! I love dainty necklaces for the exact same reasons you do. and my dad once scared me and told me a story about a girl who got strangled by her own necklace in her sleep. haha. yes. traumatic and I'll never forget it!

  3. aaaah i love this little piece. i prefer it in silver cos i'm not really a gold person... tried to purchase it when you blogged about it but obviously, it was sold out!

  4. This is gorgeous! So nice of the seller to give you one to say thank you too! I agree about lightweight and easy necklaces.. My boyfriend gave me a name necklace (in the style of Carrie's from SATC) and it's so perfect for chucking on for something extra! Also you definitely got the best of the UK in the weather! Have a good flight!


  5. Love that necklace, so pretty and delicate! x

  6. Love the necklace, it's such a simple piece but so beautiful. Have a safe flight! x

  14. I love small dainty necklaces like that! The sideways ones too!

  15. I bought myself one of these when you did your giveaway post - gorgeous and I adore it. Only problem is deciding to go for my sideways cross, hamsa or Lena Wald peace sign! I did a little post on my top 25 Etsy finds for under $25 which features a lot of similar pieces for less!

  16. That necklace is lovely! I love how delicate it is. xx

  17. I love the necklace.

    Also I can completely relate to that bittersweet feeling you're talking about. I live in South Korea, have done for 3 years now and whenever I go home it's the same feeling. So sad to leave friends and family in England but a bit excited to get back to my beautiful apartment and life here!

    You have been so lucky with the weather! It'll definitely rain when I'm back! :(
