Try your "hand" at a beginners mosaic with our purple and gold Hamsa Hand. The Hamsa is an ancient Middle Eastern amulet symbolizing the Hand of God. In all faiths it is a protective sign. It brings its owner happiness, luck, health, and good fortune. Creating a mosaic is a hugely exciting process and therapeutic as you develop the design and experiment with the possibilities of shape and colour. Learning to cut glass and ceramic is a skill which takes time and patience to develop so this Box Clever project is designed with the beginner in mind and all the tiles have been readily cut for you. We have chosen shades of purple and gold for this project. The kit comes with full instructions on how to create your mosaic from start to finish. PLEASE NOTE, we source our materials from a wide range of places to ensure quality and variety - as a consequence NO KIT IS THE SAME as tiles will vary depending on stocks. This craft box makes a perfect birthday or gift for the creatives amongst us or alternatively make your hamsa hand to use as wall decor or garden hanging.

Having worked as a senior executive in a corporate environment for most of my working life, In February 2022 I chose to retire and focus on my passion for mosaics. I trained for over 20 years with a wide variety of mosaic artists and my passion is creating colourful mosaics to add interest and reflection into gardens. I am keen to share my passion and have now set up a range of face to face workshops and mosaic kits.
