Hamsa Progress Keeper
This listing is for ONE progress keeper.
"The hamsa is a palm-shaped amulet popular throughout the Maghreb and in the Middle East and commonly used in jewelry and wall hangings.
When the Hamsa hand is worn facing down, it denotes welcoming prosperity into life. Friendship, love, grace, goodness, kindness and all the good things the Universe has would be attracted into your life. Fingers pointing downward is the most common way to wear a Hamsa hand.
The color blue, or more specifically light blue, is also considered protective against the evil eye and we could see many Hamsas in that color or with embedded gemstones in different shades of blue."

Each marker is handmade by me one at a time using sterling silver plated lobster claws and sterling silver plated head pins.
Lobster claws are perfect for progress keepers, to mark rows, or to use as removable markers in crochet.
