A conversation we had on Saturday night (blog post to follow tomorrow morning) resulted in my researching jewelery and other items featuring protection from the Evil Eye today. My colleague, Charlie, has a beautiful, tiny, delicate necklace which I’ve long admired, but the closest I could find on Etsy at least was £300! So, I moved on to less traditional, but still delightful accessories such as these:
Round Evil Eye pin: $2.50 from FloweredSkybeads
– discrete but effective – and such a lovely tone of blue!
Gold, orange and blue evil eye bracelet with dragonfly: $28 from FloweredSky
Ivory felt snowflakes with evil eye bead bobby pins: $6 from MissGlory
Swarovski Teardrop sterling silver necklace: $65 from petracollection
– how pretty is this one!
And then I stumbled across this absolute gem of a necklace:
Steampunk Green Evil Eye, $50 from NixCreations
I don’t think this would actually do the job in question – but my goodness it’s pretty!
A little further research revealed that amber, my gem of choice, is also traditionally worn to protect against the evil eye… so don’t be surprised if you see me sporting my amber necklaces a little more often in the near future! 🙂
