Eye of the Sea is a true project from the heart, the brainchild of former fashion executive Susan Bartholomew. After leaving fashion to start a line of pet accessories, she discovered she had a long-lost sister on the island of Tinos in Greece which was destined to change her life forever.
“I met a deep sea fisherman that summer on the island who offered me this shell—known as the Eye of the Sea—as a gift. Little did I know that day, that a wonderful new chapter in my life was beginning.”
The Eye of the Sea is a deep water shell that is said to have magical energies that offer strength and protection. Bartholomew incorporated these beautiful pieces into a bracelet alongside precious stones that have specific meaning. “Next thing I know, I’m sitting in Greece selling bracelets,” she laughs.
Back home in New York City, she headed to a meeting at Henri Bendel and soon found herself selling Eye of the Sea bracelets to customers the world over. Today, there are countless combinations from which to choose, all created to inspire.
The Eye of the Sea bracelet pictured below for example, features turquoise beads, a stone of health and healing said to bring wisdom and absorb negativity. The Spiras (in brass) is a sign of healing energy. For Bartholomew, these accessories are more than stylish accessories they are daily affirmations of strength. “I gave a bead to a fisherman and my life changed forever. Sometimes we simply need the courage in life to watch for the signs.” EyeoftheSea.com — A.G.
