Description

This ‘evil eye’ mismatched enamel earring, ‘shut your eyes and see’ is part of a series of single symbolic earrings. You can wear just one or match your own pair. Eyes are believed by some cultures to ward off evil, therefore you can consider this earring a lucky charm!

The oldest form of jewelry is said to be the amulet. Our earliest ancestors ascribed meaning — and magic — to feathers, bones, stones and even tree bark. They wore or carried these “amulets” for protection or to enhance their strength, courage or sexual attraction. Over time, these were replaced with symbolic objects: small replicas of animals, plants and, later, gods. And many more symbols have to come to life since.

Made of 18K gold wire with tiny golden spheres for eyelashes on textured silver. Then filled with transparent waterblue enamel, and a white golden pupil.

Because this is a handmade item, details may vary slightly. The process creates variations in texture, form and color that are unique to each item, therefore becoming a part of the personal story of your piece.
