Why the Eye?

A  single glance is all it takes. It could come from a friend, a family member or a complete stranger. It could happen on a busy city street or along a quiet country road. The Evil Eye – a curse that stems from someone’s envy or ill will – is ubiquitous and, according to countless magical practitioners, incredibly powerful.
