protective charm

Charm to protect against evil-eye. Metal link chain with seven pendants each, apart from the central one, where it is missing, consisting of a coin and a blue glass bead with yellow, white and black glass representation of eye. Five pendants have a further blue glass bead, two have carved cream-coloured beads. One of the coins looks to be Roman, another is not a coin, but a decorative token, other coins are heavily worn, but perhaps still identifiable. 2013-12-18; Crowley, Tom.
