Though, admittedly, I’ve never owned one. The intent is to ward off evil spirits, right? I’ve been in the market for eye jewelry ever since I first saw the pieces from Bottega Veneta—price-y, and a little creepy, but oh so very, very cool.

They seem more Victorian than Turkish, but maybe they have the same effect. Anyway, a straight-up evil eye charm seems like a worthwhile addition to my jewelry collection, and as for the BV stuff…well…maybe it’ll go on sale? I want it all, quite badly, though I’ve also learned that I don’t actually have to buy everything I admire.
