After finishing the Evil Eye Bangle and earrings in blues
I started thinking about other colors and their meanings. I found this website with some color breakdowns: https://evileyecollective.com/pages/evil-eye-meaning
This second pair of evil eye earrings turned out quite stunning. I'm always wary to use this metallic fuchsia color because it is not color-fast. I figured that since this is in earring form they won't be touched and rubbed on as much so I'd try it out. I love how it looks with the neon orange.
Based on my poking around the internet, the orange represents happiness protection and creativity/playfulness. The pink is friendship protection, calming/contentment/relaxation.
I got on a kick and made a version of these earrings with the same colors but with the orange as the larger focal color. I guess I could use a bright pop of color to go with masks at work lately. I'm finding that wearing dangly earrings are easier with the masks. They show better and I don't accidentally pop off the backing on the stud earrings when I have to remove one side of my mask to drink my coffee. I've already lost a few backings that way.
This last photo shows the detail on the black beads. They're faceted to add a little more interest to this design. I'm glad to be slowing down on mask making to get back to blogging, beads and my large weaving. Updates on that coming soon I hope.
