Mati Handmade Ring Black with White Eye
The Mati handcrafted ring is made by using a traditional macrame knotting technique. The evil eye, known as "mati"(μάτι) in Greek culture, is a curse thought to be given by a malicious glare that can cause bad luck or loss. By wearing a "mati" it is believed you are protected against the curse.
