A "mojo" is a magical charm, amulet or talisman thais thought to offer protection to the wearer from the evil eye. Evil Eyes have long been thought to cause injury or bad luck for the person at whom it is directed. Throughout history many people have worn Eye Talismans to ward of these curses. These are meant to turn back the evil gaze and hence turn the harm projected at the wearer.

The word Mojo has its roots in voodoo but was adopted into the early blues culture and refers to one's sexual prowess. Apparently Jim Morrison was thinking of the second meaning when he created an ingenious anagram of his name by re-arranging the letters to spell "Mr. Mojo Risin."

*****
But I got sidetracked yet again, my "mojo" amulet was designed as a wide-eyed staring back amulet. Handmade by the artist, starting with an antique telescope lens and a small Willard Tablets tin can lid. To which I added a very old image of the eye from a 100+ old medical encyclopedia.

Under the glass is a small chamber where 5 metal beads move freely around inside. You can shake or swirl this to rouse the energy of the talisman. Below hang several handmade metal and beaded symbolic charms: spirals, fish, snake and a very old glass watch vial with tiny sea glass from a beautiful beach in Kauai.

Comes on a 20" steel ball chain with the charms slightly off center to throw that evil eye doer off balance. Signed by the artist. You will treasure this quirky creation.
