This was an amazing project that started with comments on a photo sharing site that turned into conversations about traditional folklore. It inspired a small group of jewelry makers from around the world to make an interpretive piece of jewelry around "the Corno". I have made some fantastic new friends through this project. Talented Etsy jewelers I probably would never have met otherwise.

The Devil's Horn (Corno)

An offshoot of the Evil Eye curse is the use of the Corno, or Devil's Horn amulet. These twisted red coral, gold or silver amulets are often worn as necklaces by men to ward off curses on their "manliness" - very similar to a Mojo. They can often be seen sold in Italian jewelry stores and especially during Italian American festivals. Although most men who wear one will say it represents one of the horns of the devil, the Corno (also known as Cornuto or Cornicello) predates Christianity by thousands of years. Related to the Corno is the hand gesture known as the mano cornuta, which also wards off the Evil Eye by extending only the pinkie and index finger like a pair of horns and pointing it down. When this gesture is made pointing upward (similar to the heavy metal salute to the Devil) it is as an insult to somebody, meaning their husband or wife is unfaithful.
