Religious jewelry makes such a statement, don’t you think? And whether the charms are delicate or over-sized, whether it’s a whisper or a bold declaration, I find myself sucked into the wearer’s story every single time. I guess I’m a fan of believers!

What about borrowing religious symbols from other faiths? Mixing an evil eye or hamsa talisman with a Star of David or a cross or Buddha, for example. To me, this is like borrowing the best of beliefs, which feels nice when I see it happen and when I see it in action.

Tell me: Do you wear your faith? Beyond your daily kindnesses, that is!

Evil eye necklace available here.

P.S. — As a Mormon, I enjoy wearing a little covered wagon charm on Pioneer Day to honor the earliest members of my religion who crossed the Plains at great sacrifice.
