Product Details for Glass Bead 'Evil Eye' Keyring
Legend says this belief had its genesis amongst the ancient Egyptians and Sumerians (Southern Iraq). The folklore suggests especially people with blue eyes, however enchanting and attractive their eyes may look, may essentially harbor negative feelings about others. The ‘Evil Eye’ belief says that when someone eyes your good fortune with jealousy, bad luck in some form may befall you. The bead reflects the evil intent back to the onlooker. It somewhat resembles an eye and it is said the typical blue color is a factor in protecting the user.
The glass ‘evil eye’ charms can be found almost everywhere. Some people contribute everything they love or appreciate with these blue ‘evil eye’ charms. They attach an eye bead to the clothes of a new-born baby, buy gifts with a good luck charm for their sweethearts and friends, bring gifts with eye bead for a new office or a new car. Almost everywhere you see some form of blue eyes, to ward off the ‘evil eyes’ with an eye amulet.
At almost every stage of human history, man has looked for the assistance of magic objects called talismans to defy evil forces. Talismans with letters, numbers or abstract signs have survived to this day. Even the modern religions with a single God (monotheistic) have their own symbols. One of these symbols we find in almost every culture and faith for thousands of years is the figure of the eye.
Carry a bit of folklore with this keyring. Ten turquoise color glass 'evil eyes' are suspended from a keyring with a trigger snap clip to attach to belt or bag strap.
