Title: Finding Joy Made with a combination of wool and novelty yarns, and additional bead work. Inspired from the original Finding Joy. I found lots of joy using additional bead work as well as embroidery to embellish this piece. Hope you find joy where every you are in your walk of life. May this piece bring that to your home. Playful and joyful times ahead! This is part of a series of Fairy Tale ojos, inspired by the work of Svetlanka Kami, a Russian currently living in India, whose work can be seen on facebook.

The Huichol people, a name coined by the Spanish, refer to themselves as Virarica, which means “The Healing People”. We believe that our ojos de dios bring healing and focus to those that delight in them. We have expanded beyond the traditional four-sided ojo de dios, experimenting with different designs and complexity. Because of this, we often refer to our craft as mandalas instead of the traditional ojo de dios. Each mandala is made with a foundation of dowelling (wooden or the like) and yarn and is often embellished with embroidery, beading, or other treasures that make each piece unique. …..
