I'm Cuban. We believe in this thing called "mal de ojo" which translated means evil eye. We believe some people have this negative power that can hurt you. So, we wear protection. As a baby, I wore an azabache and so did my kids. I still have an azabache bracelet which is my favorite (thank you @mamioftres ) but for everyday errands, I love our new evil eye coin. It says protected on the back. Helps me feel strong knowing no one is going to ruin my day! Don't you just love jewelry that means something?
