My fascination with the eye talisman is inspired by own heritage, by my ancestral ties with my grandmother and her people.
The Evil Eye is an important concept in Romani culture. It's a talisman believed to repel evil spirits and protect the wearer from malevolence.
This talisman is dramatic. You will be noticed.
The locket focal is a little over an inch in diameter.
The glass eye is truly beautiful. It was originally intended to be used in in the creation of a stuffed feline so the detailing is exquisite.
The metal I've used is brass as is the locket itself.
To pull the beautiful color all through the length of the piece, I've used a mix of high quality black and metallic gold Czechoslovakian glass beads to create a chain 21 inches in length.
I created this piece under the influence of the waxing moon, a time to start new projects, a time for positive energy, a time for new beginnings.
A necklace you'll reach for time and time again. Made with a love for all things mystical and magical, here at Victorian Minx.
