The era of the Bohemian as well as “Hippie” looks have certainly made their presence know this year thanks to help of fellow celebrities; Vanessa Ann Hudgens, Nicole Richie, and many others.

Now, although yes, the Hamsa hand is beautiful, but, it is not JUST because it’s a cool design! It’s time for a little history lesson on this piece my fellow shopaholics! The Hamsa hand is an old apotropaic amulet for ‘magical protection,’ from the evil eye (or the envious)! Many still believe in it’s power today!
