Karma Charms

The evil eye is a curse thought to be given by a malicious glare that can cause bad luck or loss. People can send negative vibes towards you intentionally, but the power of the eye is so strong and underestimated to the point that some people unknowingly and innocently cast the curse on others. That's why it is believed, from a long time ago, that it is important to wear an evil eye somewhere on your body to ward off this curse and protect yourself and your family throughout the day. Since ancient times, and to avoid the power of the evil look, people in the Levant wore amulets or jewelry with the evil eye symbol incorporated into them in order to reflect it back to the eye that is casting it.


Each small painting from the collection “Karma” has a color that attracts a special force and is named by it, yet the symbol of the evil eye reverses the evil itself. I incorporated a lot of other symbols that were used by different cultures throughout the world since old times to protect from Jinx. In Jamaica they use a red thread that they tie around the baby’s head to keep away the evil. Native Americans use arrows to reverse the bad spirits and push them away. The Khamsa or   the hand of Fatima, (Khamsa in the eye of the envier) to turn, push and reverse away the force of the envy and the spell. Many techniques and details are used to show the process of the reverse, a chaos yet smoothing and calming.


Each painting is an amulet by itself as it holds either a necklace or an old style safety pin to represent the charms that parents used to protect their kids with. It attracts something nice while keeping away something bad.

The sizes vary from (4"x4"x1,5") or (5"X5") or (3"x9")
