BuDhaGirl loves evil eyes as chic little symbols of protection. BuDhaGirl has created bracelets, earrings, and necklaces featuring this iconic symbol. We have also decided to call the evil eye collection, the EE collection… we don’t like the word evil.
Consciously and unconsciously we transmit positive and negative energy towards others, even if we don’t mean to, we just do. Depending on how the person who is receiving your energy is able to process your “vibes” it can be a positive or negative experience for them.
A bit of Boho makes our Goldie EE necklace a tribute to Goldie Hawn, the ultimate California girl. Mixing bunches of little eye drops to form the necklace, then finishing it with a square back clear crystal chain makes this necklace an easy wear with jeans or a gown. Day into evening, sensational fun…just like Goldie. Available in turquoise. Handcrafted in the US with Turkish beads.

The evil eye - first recorded by the Mesopotamians about 5,000 years ago in cuneiform on clay tablets, the Evil Eye may actually have originated as early as the Upper Paleolithic age
We find this figure in Jewish, Christian and Muslim cultures as well as Buddhist and Hindu societies. This common tradition finds a new identity in the 3000 years old glass craftsmanship of Anatolia. A glass master combines the power the eye figure with the power of the fire and creates a new talisman: The Evil Eye Bead.
It's believed that there are three types of evil eyes
The first are unconscious evil eyes. These harm people and things, without intending to. The second type intends to harm. The third one is unseen, hidden evil which is the most scared one.
It was believed that, this eye saw all the wickedness in the world and removed poverty and ignorance. When Horus opened its eyes the world was enlightened, when he closed, it became dark. From Egypt, the eye talisman had spread to the Mediterranean, Middle East and Europe.
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 Nazar Boncuk charm (or Evil Eye Bead) is an "eye", often set on a blue background. It stares back at the world to ward off evil eye and keep you safe from harm.Since then the people have been attaching this evil eye bead to everything they wished to protect from the evil eyes. From the new-born babies to their horses or even to the doors of their homes.
