The shop owner, Hande, is from Istanbul, Turkey. While study here in Colorado, Hande discovered ETSY and was able to fulfill a childhood dream of having a handmade shop.
One of the things that sets Hande Made It apart from other ETSY shops is their beautiful Evil Eye pieces. The Evil Eye charm is deeply rooted in Turkish culture and the neon colors found in the shop are Hande’s own style. The Evil Eye charms were first created to stare back at the eyes of harm and is meant to protect and bring prosperity to the wearer. All of the colors in the bracelet have certain meanings:
- Turquoise: warding off evil eye, protection
- Blue: protection, good fortune, peace, truth
- Green: life, virtue
- Yellow: hope, joy, happiness
- Orange: warmth, energy, balance
- Red: energy, strength, passion
- Pink: romance, love, emotional healing
- Purple: spiritual power
- Indigo: third eye, balance
- Black: repelling negativity
- White: purity, holiness
My absolute favorite piece is the Evil Eye. While the Evil Eye is deeply rooted in Turkish culture, it reminds me of our time living on the border in Texas. We often had people graciously offer to ward off evil for us and wearing this bracelet reminds me of that time. These pieces are bright, colorful and have held up really well to wearing.
