Vintage black serpentine mano figa charm necklace
Handmade Reclaimed Black Serpentine Mano Figa Charm Necklace Good Luck Jewelry
This necklace was handmade using a combination of new and vintage materials. It features a vintage carved black serpentine figa charm from the 1970's. It is on a new gold-filled chain which is finished with a brass (over copper) lobster clasp and a brass hexagon loop.
Once seen as a slightly obscene gesture, the mano (hand) figa (fig) has also been used like an evil eye as a symbol of protection or good luck.
The charm measures approx. 1.25" long and .5" across. The chain is 18" long.
Please note: The color of black serpentine isn't a true black- it's more of a very dark charcoal green.
