In many cultures the symbol of an eye wards off negativity. Wearing an evil eye pendant is believed to promote good luck and protect the wearer. My sterling silver evil eye pendant features a detailed cloisonné enamel eye crafted in my Colorado studio. The custom crafted necklace is a one of a kind original.
I use the technique cloisonné enamel to make the eye in this designer pendant. It entails carefully bending pure silver ribbons of wire and fusing them to a pure silver surface with clear enamel. The following layers of enamel are colored and can take up to 15 applications and firings in a kiln. After all the firings are complete the enamel eye gets sanded down so the wires are flush to the glass. The eye then gets sanded to a high polish, which gives it a gorgeous effect of depth and translucency. After that, it is bezel set in a handcrafted sterling silver textured and embellished setting. The technique is quite labor intensive but the results are a magical beautiful piece of finely handcrafted jewelry. The pendant comes with a sterling rounded box chain measuring 16" or 18". Please specify chain length.
