♡Necklace Review and Etsy Stores♡

I ordered a necklace off of Etsy roughly two or three months ago and have been waiting patiently (ok that's a lie, I am nowhere near patient when it comes to ordering things online) for the small parcel to arrive. After contacting the shop owner it turns out she was away for a little while and then it just took her a while to send it off. I can now happily say that the day of its arrival is here!
I ordered off Cherye Leah's store Midnight Leah and since trying to visit her store after receiving the necklace it seems as if the store itself has gone, which is disappointing because I wanted to show you guys more of her things! Hopefully she'll have it up and running again soon.
The necklace is called Triple Chain Hand of Fatima and as you can see it has three chains, it is homemade and has a variety of charms and beads. The Hand of Fatima, or Hamsa, is an ancient talisman for protection against the evil eye, which is a curse traditionally believed to befall a person who is the target of negativity in the form of jealousy, envy or hatred. If it is worn as an amulet it is thought that the Hand of Fatima offers protection and blessing and the wearer will receive luck, vitality and will find the favour of benevolent forces as well as sheltering the wearer from obstacles, adversity and helping the person turn their fate into destiny. The symbol is sacred in many cultures and religions including Judaism, Buddhism, Shamanism, Hinduism, Christianity, Jainism and Islamic Belief.
Opening up the parcel it was tucked away in a cute golden draw-string bag. To be honest, I was not expecting the cross symbols on the necklace but nevertheless I am still in love with the necklace. I want to wear it as soon as possible, not including wearing it for the photo above, but I am trying to determine how delicate it is because of all the beads, charms and links as I have a feeling it may tangle and get caught easily.
There's only one way to find that out though! I think I may wear it as part of my Halloween costume.

Here are some other Etsy jewellery stores I have come across that I can't wait to buy things from:
Galisfly: Galisfly sell a lot of unique and simple rings, they have so much variety! I think it's a great place to go if you're looking for knuckle rings and affordable jewellery.
Cleopatra's Bling: Cleopatra's Bling's jewellery are inspired by Turkey and India and focus a lot on the use of crystals and precious stones. Their jewellery is very bohemian and beautiful.
Earthshine: Earthshine sell a variety of rings, necklaces, bracelets and cuffs, just to name a few. Their products are very cosmic and they use a lot of moons and stars which I absolutely love!
I am going to a uni party on the night of Halloween, I'm so excited, I have always loved Halloween. I hope you guys have an extra spooky night! Also, what are your favourite Etsy stores if you have any? Do you like the look of the ones I have mentioned?
