Loner’s Eye Protection Amulet – Unlocking


In the late 1700’s, it was fashionable to give to your far-away beloved a painting of your eye. To gaze upon you in adoration, as a token of love and a reminder that they are there, however distant, always watching over you.

In 2020, we’ve all been at home, alone, missing those we love – or just other humans in general. During this time I became fascinated with the art of the Lover’s Eye, I’ve spent hours finding them online and hoarding them into a folder to sift through. Are they keeping me company, during this time? Am I looking at these eyes in a folder on my phone, gazing into them and feeling that they might be gazing back? 

Thus was born the Loner’s Eye series. A series of small, hand-painted eyes in antique frames, to keep us company and send a protective gaze out upon us while we wander, aimlessly, from room to room in our lonely homes.

– Gouache paint, clary sage oil, rosemary oil, black tormaline.

– Small antique frame in brass with red velvet reverse. Strung on hand-dyed silk ribbon to wear or hang as you please. *Important note this is hand painted, and only suitable for wearing if kept dry and safe*

– 3.5 x 2.5cm.
