  •  Essaouira Judaica Hamsa with El Shaddai Hebrew Characters 1
  • This particular style of Hamsa is from the town Essaouira. The Hamsa body appears to be cast 800 Silver (80% silver content) which was then hand finished and stamped with a pattern. The stamped Hamsa then received a cast  92.5 Sterling Silver Hebrew Characters for El Shaddai (Hebrew: אֵל שַׁדַּי‬)  which were soldered on to the 800 Silver base. This addition to the Hamsa base accounts for the discoloration surrounding the Characters.
  • El Shaddai (Hebrew: אֵל שַׁדַּי‬) or just Shaddai is one of the names of the God of Israel. El Shaddai is conventionally translated as God Almighty.
