Another daily essential, a piece I feel naked without, is this evil eye necklace. My mom received it as a gift from a friend when I was little. I always loved it and in my 20’s she gave it to me. I LOVE it. I never take it off. While I am obsessed with it’s aesthetic look, the essential aspect of it is more the idea that somehow my mom is magically watching over me and helping me ward off anything negative. Weird, superstitious, and unrealistic? Maybe. But it’s a piece of jewelry that has become a source of comfort and solace along with one of beauty.
