i've been gone for a while, huh?! well, i've been busy preparing for my final graduate review this friday. lots of printing and dying and bleaching and crocheting and reading and thinking about magic and horses and the universe. i made these god's eye earrings to wear for my review. they are made of sterling silver, glow-in-the-dark thread and horse hair. they didn't turn out quite the way i was hoping, but i'm considering them prototypes.

they're about 1.5" long, plus the earwire. here i am wearing them [with twenty-twenty doing his best disaffected gucci model stare.]

for the huichol peoples of northwestern mexico, the god's eye is symbolic of the power of seeing and understanding that which is unknown and unknowable, The Mystery. the huichol call their god's eyes sikuli, which means "the power to see and understand things unknown." yes!


  1. I liked your comment about 20 and Gucci models.

  2. i would love to buy a pair of those magical earrings from you!!
