Hand of Fatima necklace

I've always been drawn to the "hand of Fatima", (Hamsa)  symbol. It is an ancient symbol dating back to the Stone Age period where they discovered drawings of this hand on the cave walls.
The Hand of Fatima represents Divine protection, freedom and peaceful co-existence with others. It doesn't belong to any religion. Could be interpreted as the hand of light, showing human kind the way to brightness and peace. Gives protection from the evil eye. What's not to love about this hand? 

I incorporated this symbol into a necklace, which also is made of Rudaksha beads, Turquoise beads, sandalwood beads, "the evil eye" protection bead from Turkey and a glass dome with the image of the Hindu Goddess Lakshmi.
