Eye beads

Post by kyhalfpt on Tue Jan 27, 2015 1:48 am

So how many different designs are there of this bead?  These are the two that I have:



Sorry for the crappy photo, but with all the snowmageddon drama here I didn't get home till after dark.  I am having trouble using these beads.  The one on the right is new--came in my swan kit.  I didn't realize that the pupil of the eye was raised on this style.  Anyone want to talk about this or am I just too bored to come up with things to discuss?

No, it's a great topic!!! Unfortunately I own just the right one... I love it, might be difficult to use, but once it finds it's place it's great! Wish I had more eyes, but they are not easy to find or cheap!

I do only have the left one and love it with the new blue Hematite and coral beads. It's one of the very uniques, I've bought last year.

That is how I used them...
I plan to buy the new barrel shaped TB Silver with the turtle on and use it with more silver and a pearl and the Evil Eye, like a kind of statement bead, to ward off evil or to protect, but first must find a nice one. The scarab would also go nicely with it.





Do you find it difficult to choose the silver or the glass?

Fleur & Catsworld your combos are great! I think I have trouble with the eyes in general. I think the design is great, but not sure I like my bracelet looking at me.... I'll keep playing with them, maybe they will grow on me.

So far, I've only used my eye  bead once, and that was with other blue beads to tame it a bit.

Those are the only two I have; and I'm afraid I LOVE them alot and have mutiples. I'm almost certain that I've seen the Egyptian eye in a brown palette on this forum. Anyone else recall that?

I've got 2 Egyptian and one Evil, love the egyptian to pieces but have to admit I am having problems with the evil eye, as a standalone bead I love looking at it but it's not working for me on a bracelet.

I love all of your bracelets but I am the tiniest bit afraid of these eyes! I feel like they are looking at me!

I totally love this theat and the eyes - they are among my most liked beads Smile

My eyes look after my two Lhasa Girls - especially since Gyalmo´s scare with a street cat a few months back that sat on our grounds under our car and scratched Gyalmos eye when she went too near - luckily it healed but we were really scared for her sight...





and the current one Smile

lovely bracelets!
I am totally envious of Cloverbead's red eye and Trollperle's yellow eye, they are wonderful,

I love the eye beads and finally have some. I have hunted for them since I first saw the older ones. 
Love the pictures of all the beads
I have been wearing them on a bangle.

Trollperle I never really considered, but your Tibet bead is really an eye bead. Seems like you have an old orange one too! Lucky Trollie!

Regarding the eyes, I use to have a dear friend who was Lebanese. She talked about wearing a blue bead or an evil eye amulet to ward off the evil eye. Of course she didn't really believe believe it but she did enjoy maintaining the tradition. Personally I have an evil eye amulet handing from my bedroom window. You never can be too careful!

I'm curious: what makes a Tibet bead "an old orange" one? I knew there were different shades of the GLA.

Beady-Eyed, I think PansyCat meant that the Tibet Tibet bead rather looks like an eye bead, with its dots. And that Trollperle has an old orange eye bead, as well.

I think whoever made my eye bead, made trollperle's too, they look identical. I got mine from steffans years ago, it looked very unloved right up in the corner of a display case while everyone was after the raspberry Dillos. I only picked it up because it was so neatly made, very balanced, just perfect. I had no idea at the time how I would use it, but I had to have it.

I've only got this one



but I have also seen a design where there "eyes" are at right angles to the way they are normally done. They look like eyes to me anyway - I think I have a photo on my phone somewhere - I'll dig it out. Sadly I don't have the bead in question - just a photo from a shop.
