Evil Eye Watches – The Newest Creations

Evil eye beads have such a huge impact on any piece of jewelry you create. You can take everyday items and make them spectacular. A plain pair of earrings with the evil eye beads added makes an entirely different look. A bracelet with your favorite color beads accented by just the right color of evil eye beads makes a piece of art. An item most people wear at some time or another such as a watch becomes a true fashion accessory.

This evil eye watch is made with a silver coated chain and toggle clasp. The watch face is a charm designed piece that is attached to the watch chain. Along the length of the chain are six 8mm multi colored evil eye beads alternated with  four 8mm crystal ball charms.

Evil Eye Bracelets with 8mm Evil Eye Beads

Evil eye beads measuring 8mm and available in a wide range of colors are some of the most common beads used in evil eye jewelry making. 8mm Evil Eye beads are harder to work with due to their smaller size and also require all beads to be near perfect to create an evil eye jewelry piece that is pleasing to the eye. Irregular shaped beads will cause the bracelet to be out of alignment.  This might be true for all bracelets but as the size of the beads get smaller which increases the number of beads on the bracelet, the roundness and the perfection of the evil eye beads play a much larger role.

Pictured here is a white evil eye bracelet made with 8mm glass evil eye beads. Notice the slight protruding of the eyes. It is a small modification to the evil eye bead but a huge change in appearance for the evil eye bracelet. There are lower end evil eye bracelets made using smooth evil eye beads as well but as you will notice, these are usually acrylic beads that are produced to offer low end and cheaper bracelets that are usually mass produced overseas.

The history of the evil eye bead tells us that in order to serve its true purpose, the bead must  be glass. You can find more information on traditional evil eye beads here.
