The Evil Eye charm is known in Greek culture to help ward off negative energy from “The Mati” or “The Evil Eye” as it is more popularly known.
Being of Greek descent, I have grown up with the Evil Eye being a staple in my life.
I wanted to design this set as an ode to my upbringing and something that represents the significance of the Evil Eye.


Interest Check form







I am going to be using all GMK in-stock colors to help keep price to a minimum.
Each color represents a different layer of the Evil Eye.






Base kit



The only molds that will need to be created are for the Evil Eye Novelties. Everything else, including the Greek sub-legend molds, are readily available.

Spacebar Kit



Non-Accent Kit



40's/Ortho Kit



Latin Alphas Kit







Minimal Eye



Pattern Eye

Gang ****

Kitting is good. Not gonna complain about lack of F13, as there are novs included in base. Stock colors are a big thumbs up from me. 40s kit and spacebars are satisfactory, not full, but satisfactory.

I'm a fan of the minimal mat, but not so much a fan of the pattern mat. I don't think the pattern captures the theme well. Just my two cents.

I like the inspiration, and the set captures it well. GLWIC

I think you put the accent keys in base kit and normal mods in accent kit  :)) . Anyway, please add F13 in base and R3 1u "\|" key to also support basic ISO.

It was an aesthetic choice to put the lighter blue in the F row!

It says underneath the 40's kit that there was a mistake in renders and we will be fixing it soon!

base kit looks like it might be too expensive depending on what MOQ is... i don't think all the novs are necessary in base (some are nice though)

nonetheless i like the colors, idea, and set in general.

Yassou my Greek friend, brilliant idea/inspiration for a keycap set. Being Armenian, I too grew up with the knowledge of the Evil Eye thanks to our Greek friends. Definite cop for me, can't wait.

This would be fun in the future! for now I'm gonna leave it as is just because to do this will require a lot of custom molds which would shoot up the cost of this set by a good chunk!

I think many, if not all, are actually available, though I could be mistaken.

Not a huge fan of the pattern deskmat but, 100p would use the other deskmat.
