Eye Milagro Amulet

$25.00
About

Hand-carved in wax in our studio, then cast in aluminum and dipped in 14k gold, this amulet is designed to protect you from the Evil Eye. The design is inspired by milagros (or "ex-votos"), religious folk charms used for prayer in Mexico and Latin America.  The little sculptures often represent a body part - for example, a leg - which could be used as a plea to a saint for the improvement of an injured leg.  But the leg could refer to something more abstract, like the concept of travel.  Just as an eye-shaped milagro could represent clairvoyance, insight, protection, or whatever else you attribute to it.
