Hands are very symbolic - they represent the tools of work, the touch of love and the spiritual ability to heal. Often hands are the focus of religious icons and paintings, saints hands clasped in prayer or hand held aloft in celebration.
Hands are important across continents and cultures. I am inspired by The Hand of Fatima or the Hamsa hand, which is benign and protective.
As a reiki healer I see hands as a symbol of healing and I like to think that my jewellery carries with it some of that energy for the wearer.
This pendant has 11 individually hand punched designs using steel punches.
