|Beaded 4th of July Wreath|
First up - Happy 4th of July to all our American readers - Ironic that as the only Brit on the team I'm the one posting today but I'm happy to hold the fort while the rest of the team celebrate. I hope you all have a lovely day.
The inspiration for today's post comes from a rather unusual source - my own face or, to be precise the image that greeted me when I looked in the mirror on Monday morning (apologies in advance to anyone of a squeamish disposition)...
The concept if the evil eye - the ability to cause bad luck or harm to a person with an ill-wishing look spans many cultures and as we all know, eye charms are popular as a way of warding them off. Well I don't know if my ailment is the result of someone casting me a 'look' but I thought I'd have a little scout around for art beads or jewellery that might act as charms and I wasn't disappointed...

Hopefully, none of you are in need of protective charms but it's good to know there are some beautifully creative handmade examples out there if you do and, if you've created any evil eye pieces yourself do share with us - we'd love to see them.
