Our blogs first original creation belongs to Kim Miles. Kim calls these beads with the custom evil eyes on them ‘stink eyes’. Below is from Kim’s blog
“Evil Eye beads have been around for ages. I didn’t make them up, but this week I really feel like making them. It all started with the dogs… When little Sarafina got hurt one day, on our watch, I felt like I wanted to do something more to protect her, and the rest of the pack. OK, maybe it’s silly, but then we all know I’m a firm believer in silliness. After making beads for all the dogs, I still hadn’t had enough of the eye theme, so I made a bunch for people too. I’ll put them up in my BeadShop in a couple of days. ”
The beadshop that Kim refers to is on her beautiful site www.kimmiles.com . The website also has links to Kim’s blog where you can keep tabs on her most recent work. Kim has been making beads since 1996 and her work has been featured in several magazines such as Lapidary Journal, Bead & Button Magazine, Beadwork Magazine as well as others. Visit Kim’s site for more of her work some of which is also available for sale on her website.
Kim’s name for the evil eye beads is what we found the most interesting as well as amusing. As Kim says ” I think the name is going to stick. What could be better than giving those pesky old Evil Spirits the Stink Eye? Ha! Take that! ” You tell’em Kim!!!
