We've admitted before to being superstitious, but it wasn't until we packed up our cottage recently that we realized we have a few protective or good luck pieces. Our blue glass evil eye amulet is our favorite -- chalk it up to having lived in Greece, where such things are commonplace.
The charm "mirrors back" the evil eye, lending protection to its owner.
You can buy them online at places such as GreekShops or Evil Eye Store, for instance. We've also seen them at Global Beads in Mountain View.
