Description
These 20 high-quality ceramic beads were hand-crafted and hand-decorated by expert Peruvian crafts people. The clay was shaped and fired, painted and glazed, then fired a second time for a true ceramic hardness. They feature an eye as protection against the evil eye, the belief that some people can do harm simply by looking at one. The belief is not indigenous to Peru, but comes Turkey and Greece.

As with all Peruvian ceramics, the painting is done with mineral-based pigments, not artificial dyes. In this case, it is cobalt that produces the deep, royal blue color. Cobalt is said to stimulate the use of the "third eye" and to be generally protective, and its use here thus augments the effect of the eye image in warding off the evil eye.

Because they are handmade, there are slight variations in the sizes of the beads and in the sizes and positions of the holes. They are flattened off spherical, about 10mm x 9mm, with 2mm holes. The holes run horizontally in relation to the eye.
