These three pieces come from a friend of my family who practices Santeria. She is actualy what you would refer to as a Santera, and in basic terms is more or less of a witch in her own right. She had many different customs that she has picked along the years that she uses in her every day creation of magic. However, there is probably none more traditional or powerful than the "Mal de Ojo" bracelets.
Mal de Ojo is a condition where somebody casts a spell of misfortune and bad luck on you simply looking at you the wrong way. This misfortunate spell starts with yourself but can leak into geneations of offspring to come, that will really just place a curse on your family name.
These pieces have been blessed by the sacred God Obatala, himself. They are Mal de Ojos protector bracelets that will keep you safe from the Mal De Ojo stare. I have three of these pieces and they've both been touched the hand of Obatala who is one of the premier Gods of magic and diviniation in Santeria. This piece goes a step further, though and protects you from malicious spells from all walks of life, reflects them back to the person who has sent them to you or merely deflects them if there are just naturally occurring negative energies in the air. Furthermore, this piece gives you the white light santeria magic of Obatala. For those of you into spells and witchcraft you could really ask for more than that!
