OOAK Mano Figa with Brass Bangles (seconds sale!)
One of a kind jeweler's brass end cap on a hand carved (by me! see process pic) ceramic mano figa. Brass bangle detail. The largest of the figas this round, a statement talisman no doubt!
This one was slightly damaged in the process of setting it in the cap and is being offered as is at a deep discount. The "thumb" chipped, it is not visible when hanging and does not detract from the overall vibe of the piece :)
The mano figa (fig hand) is an ancient symbol that has traversed deep time and many cultures and used to ward off the evil eye. In some cases it is used as a symbol of female strength and power. More on that here. Most of us know them from the necks of our Grandmothers or the cases of our favorite antique spots. It's been a long time goal of mine to create me own, and here we are!
2" total length
Comes on a 20" sterling silver charm chain (adjustable on request)
