Take protection with you
Wait. That didn't quite come out right. Let's try again...
For centuries evil eyes have been used as symbols of protection all over the world. This sterling silver version is a new take on that old, timeless theme and now you can have it with you no matter where you are.
What’s so special about it?
- It is truly unique. In fact, from bracelet to bracelet there are minor variations in each silver eye link due to the handcrafted process.
- Every bracelet is artist-made in small batches by Lori Greenberg. They start out as solid sterling silver sheet and wire that is then pounded, sawed and soldered into the detailed eye links.
- The links are connected by custom made chain links that are soldered shut, for added durability.
- Each silver evil eye bracelet is finished with a strong, easy-to-grip, 925 silver swivel lobster clasp which is also soldered into place, so it can withstand a lot of wear and warding off of evil!
The Story Behind the Eye Jewelry
Basically, the story goes: I’m obsessed with eyes, and it seems like a lot of the rest of the world is, too. So they are the subject of my Signature Collection and will always be a part of my offerings.
Some examples of eye of protection motifs…
In Greece the evil eye is also known as a Mati. The evil eye is actually a curse that is cast by a glare backed up with negative intentions. It is said that wearing a Mati prevents the curse from happening.
In Egypt it’s the Eye of Horus, or Wadjet. It is also known to provide protection, but also is said to promote good health. In ancient Egyptian lore there is a story about Horus’ eye being ripped into six parts but later restored and believed to have healing properties. Talimans were made, and worn, with the Eye of Horus for that reason.
The Masonic eye represents the Eye of God, and symbolized God watching over the universe. They borrowed the symbology from ancient nations who went before them.
I could go on and on. Do a google search for any region, culture, or group and I bet you find something to do with eye symbolism. Regardless…this bracelet has you covered.
