My talented wonderful friend Hazel bought the very FIRST All Seeing Eye pendant from me. This is what it looked like new: Then she wore it for 200 days (and counting) in a row. She barely takes it off. It’s been to Berlin. It’s been around. It looks like this now: Right so you can’t REALLY see the difference, but it definitely has a patina of love now. She says she LOVES the even-more-heirloom look of it. I’m just happy it is so loved :)

The All-Seeing-Eye is quite the little hot potato of conspiracy theory and symbolism. I just think it looks cool. An eye often surrounded with rays of light and enclosed by a triangle is sometimes interpreted as depicting the eye of God watching over humankind. Like my Eye of Horus embroidery, this imagery can be traced to the ancient Egyptians, but also appears in Buddhist, Hindu, Caodaist and Christian traditions. Esoteric symbols swathed in tradition and mystery are right up my street dontcha know, and I had some triangular pendants so it was a must-do. So I did the eye outline...
