Item details

Here is the symbolism of this piece (according to Wiki):
The Hand (Khamsa), particularly the open right hand, is a sign of protection that also represents blessings, power and strength, and is seen as potent in deflecting the evil eye. The hand can be depicted with the fingers spread apart to ward off evil, or as closed together to bring good luck.

Another of my hamsa hands; this one I first cut out, stamped with some of my own hand carved stamps, then after it was bisque fired I spent quite a few hours carefully underglazing each impression with bright colors. This particular tile is a lime rickie, having been also overglazed in a transparent lime which made all the impressions really *POP*. Each tile I make is unusual, but this one is especially eerie, beautiful and unique.

I love symbolism, and these hands have everything there is to love all in one piece: hope, protection, good luck, beauty, power. As you can see, I chose the closed finger or "good luck" version of the hand, as most of the ones I researched were using this style.

SIZING: See LAST TWO photos for exact sizing; I'm particular about making sure there are rulers there so you can tell EXACTLY how large or small an item might be. To my eye this piece looks to be approx. 3 3/4" x 4".

Thanks very much for looking, and Happy Shopping!

Shipping is USPS: either 1st class, priority mail or flat rate box.

PLEASE NOTE THIS: ANYTHING DAMAGED IN SHIPPING IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE SHPPING AGENT AND I WILL NO LONGER REPLACE BROKEN ITEMS so please do not write and DEMAND a replacement from me. I package everything quite carefully and if it gets broken during transit you will need to file a claim with the post office. If you would like to REQUEST an item be remade, I can often comply with that given enough time. Thank you for understanding this but some people have taken advantage of my good nature.

USPS offers an automatic $50 on Priority Mail shipments, but if you are worried about it, you should purchase additional insurance prior to shipment.

PLEASE PURCHASE INSURANCE if it is not included and you are worried about the safety of your item(s). I always pack CAREFULLY, but the machines that sort and kick the boxes around don't always use as much care as one would like. Anything extra like the insurance, shipping confirmation, international sales, etc. will have to be checked with me prior to purchase please, so I can add it into the price.

By working from home, I'm trying to reduce my carbon footprint as well as limiting gasoline fumes; and the USPS picks up and delivers daily so you will not expect any delays in that regard.

I also recycle EVERYTHING, and that means shipping materials also. I'm trying to kill LESS TREES and make the world a little less filled with garbage; and having said that believe me everything will be cleanly, carefully packaged for withstanding postal trauma.


Payments

My preferred payment method is PayPal or Etsy payments. I will always combine shipping to save you money whenever possible. I realize shipping is high, so I try to do everything I can to help you out with that.
MO residents expect to pay 8.5% sales tax; sorry about that but 'them's the rules'. Payment is expected either immediately or within 3 days' time. Otherwise items will be relisted and I will have to leave negative feedback, sorry about that.


Returns & exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Additional return information
No refunds or exchanges unless item(s) have been misrepresented.

PLEASE REMEMBER: ALL ITEMS ARE HAND-MADE AND HAVE NATURAL VARIATIONS AND QUIRKS, AS WELL AS VARYING TILE THICKNESSES, AND OCCASIONAL CRAZING, NO MATTER HOW MUCH I TRY TO MAKE EVERYTHING PERFECT, so thank you to all my wonderful customers who appreciate that.

ALSO, COMPUTER MONITORS ARE NOT ALWAYS PERFECTLY COLOR ENHANCED; SO ITEMS MAY LOOK DIFFERENT FROM THEIR PHOTOS 'IN THE LIGHT OF DAY'. PLEASE TAKE THIS INTO CONSIDERATION WHEN PURCHASING ITEMS. I WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY AND AT EASE WITH YOUR PURCHASE, SO I WILL DO ANYTHING PRIOR TO SHIPPING TO ENSURE YOU ARE HAPPY WITH YOUR DECISION. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT AN ITEM, PLEASE EMAIL ME PRIOR TO PURCHASE!

Additional policies

CUSTOM TILES ARE APPROX. 65 cents PER SQUARE INCH. I DO charge a SPECIAL REQUEST as well as a DESIGN FEE (if appropriate) which depends on the size/difficulty of the project, so email me and we can see what it is you want and how much time/effort it will take me to make it happen.

After doing many custom orders I've finally figured on a pricing structure for CUSTOM TALKING TILES that seems fair to everyone depending on the size of their order. I charge 50 cents per letter for smaller sayings up to 6 words, or 45 cents per letter for 7-25 words, or 35 cents per letter over 25 words for any reasonably sized (like nothing 4-5" high or more!) letters and glaze combinations. IF there is something persnickity about the glazes then the price may vary.

I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE to do their own thing when it comes to installation . . . HOWEVER: If you DO NOT KNOW how to lay tile, and you wish for a PROFESSIONAL-LOOKING installation, please call a certified ceramic tile installer to do your work for you. IF this is something important to you and its going to ruin your life to have it done crooked or not grouted properly; please have somebody who specializes in these types of things to do the tile setting for you! I WILL NOT be responsible if you lay the tiles up-side-down, back-side-in, tilted, unsealed, or whatever odd thing a person can do and then want a refund for...so be warned!
