From Wikipedia: There are two main styles of a hamsa hand: the stylized hamsa hand with two symmetrical thumbs, and hamsa hands that are not symmetrical and shaped like actual hands. Either hamsa hand can be worn with the fingers pointing up or down.
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 jewellery items. Many artists use the image of the hamsa hand in jewelry, paintings, sculptures, wall decorations, and amulets.
The renewed interest in Kabbalah and mystical Judaism is a factor in bringing the hamsa pendant back into vogue. In Jewish mysticism, fish are a symbol of good luck, so many hamsas are also decorated with fish images.
Comes with earring hook! Remember, this is only ONE item. If you want two earrings (assuming you have two ears!) then you will obviously need to order another... ***** PLEASE READ BELOW **** With all kinds of problems printing in silver and the fact that the lettering seems to have disappeared on upload I am taking this out of sale and will have to do a complete revision. If you would like to be notified when I have done this please email me at gslinger at rogers dot com.
A pendant of the continent of Africa, just in time for the World Cup!
I have a variation on this with 2010 lettering in the centre, here, http://www.shapeways.com/model/129475/2010_world_cup_pendant.html
SIMPLER VERSION AVAILABLE HERE: http://shpws.me/lmoU have only offered this in the new (and temporary?) FINE ULTRA DETAIL plastic since that would be the only material capable of picking up the fine details in the model.
A recreation of Dr Who's TARDIS. One of my favourite shows as a kid and still shown today, Doctor Who's TARDIS has undergone many incarnations. It seems that season 18's is perhaps the most popular and that is what I tried to remain close to when designing it. This one has no door handles on it, though, simply because I feel the printing process just wouldn't handle the thin material very well (the thickness of the handle was one tenth of a mm). But, in looking at the dozens of incarnations of the TARDIS there were some that did not have any handles, in fact.
The "Police Box" lettering is extruded on each side but I have not been able to put the sign on the phone cover door because of the size.
