In south Indian culture, drishti is believed to be a manifestation of negative thoughts directed at a person by others. We have many rituals to protect and counteract this evil eye. Drishti pottus - big black dots on lovely baby cheeks - is one such ritual, believed to ward off the evil eye. I was inspired by this age old tradition and designed Mayil's drishti necklaces. An odd (albeit beautiful) bead for an asymmetry to deflect any drishti coming your way. Wear or gift one this summer, and yes I customize!
