Back to business...The ''Ojo de Venado''




I just got back from a 3 week trip to Mexico to celebrate my 50th birthday. It being my favorite country I can't think of a better place to turn the big 5 0

I found great seeds while I was there. They are amulets and are a Mexican form of magical protection. They are called ''Ojo de Venado'' seeds of Mucuna pruriens. The Ojo de Venado mature beans are considered both aphrodisiac and very protective, with strong healing properties. Upon my return I used them to make these earrings and pendant after carefully polishing and drilling them.
