The Accessorize guy on Hill Road (yeah, he’s the same guy I keep talking about) had this necklace at his makeshift stall yesterday. It looked like a similar necklace Accessorize had not too long ago – yes, the necklace on the left (see picture). When I saw the rustic-looking and unenamelled version of the former, I decided to buy it. It was just 50 bucks!
Oooh, and I read up some stuff online about the Hand Of Fatima and apparently, it’s a protective charm. This hand-shaped amulet is popular in the Middle East and North Africa; it works to ward off the evil eye. Well, I’m glad – I don’t want any curses and I could use some luck right now! If you’re looking to buy one of these, check out the shopping catalogues of Accessorize, Promod and Harrods. Maybe you’ll get lucky – don’t question Fatima. Surely, she’ll have a way of reaching you… haha.
