This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
This is my entry for the Cultural Diversity challenge!

The evil eye is a common belief in middle-eastern/Mediterranean countries like Greece, where my ancestors are from. The symbol is worn as a method of protection against the curse of the evil eye, which can be cured by special chants or prayers. It's most commonly portrayed as being blue in color, and its use in jewelry is very popular.

I have created 3 versions of the evil eye necklace. There are no bump maps but I have given 3D detail to each one:

Round Glass Bead Necklace
A necklace made up of many round glass beads featuring the evil eye.

Silver Heart Necklace
Inspired by the kind I had as a child, a simple blue eye on a small silver heart-shaped charm.
Please note: this mesh is fickle and will flash blue if you choose it in CAS and load the Sim to a lot. It's best to add the necklace via mirror after moving a Sim in somewhere.

Glass Pendant On Black Cord
A large glass teardrop pendant with the evil eye, hanging from a black leather cord.

This mesh was extracted from Maxis clothing and the texture looks sort of crummy when zoomed in SO close, but if you look at the gameplay view you'll see it renders perfectly when at a normal distance!

Sorry guys, my game crashed and I deleted everything so I don't know anymore what hair/clothes were used. March, I know she's in a dress, not a shirt. Bush, I think I got the hair from GOS...
