These beautiful khamsas are custom-made for Mushmina by our longtime friend, collaborator and talented metalsmith, Cherif in the Northeast Moroccan town of Meknes. Cherif has been working and creating with our intrepid Director of Design, Katie, for years. Cherif’s specialty is a unique ancient technique called Damascus, originally from Syria. It is an intricate process, which involves layering fine threads of sterling silver onto steel pieces. The end result is gorgeous patterns and shapes. Mushmina Damascus Khamsas can be hung in your home to protect the house and and to bring positive energy.
