The Kaicy Necklace Inspired by the Evil-Eye Mosaic says “What You Think Turns To You”
Inspired by the Kemgöz mosaic of the 3rd century that exhibited in Turkey's first and world's second largest mosaic museum Antakya Mosaic Museum, Kaicy necklace’s philosophy is remarkable.
In the mosaic designed to keep away from evil, an aye that pierced with spear and wrapped around animals is picturized. The evil eye subject is a common subject having been used since ancient times to today.
In the design that meets the prominent medallion form and the chain necklace, there is a mosaic textured eye. The Eye is surrounded by wave forms as it does around the mosaic.
In the necklace chain there is also a written Greek world “Kaicy” that means “you too.”
Especially in ancient times such mosaics are used in public areas where people interact with other people.
Atasay’s Kaicy necklace is a jewel that can hang around any time of the day and it can send back to negative feelings and energies that belong the to one who is looking. The piece is a timeless piece that will enter the collections of jewellers as a living Anatolian jewellery.
