Ojos de Dios [God's Eye]

I have never really been a fan of the summer craft God's Eye or Ojos de Dios. However, recently I have been attracted to fibers and this craft's simplicity. It makes me think of hunting for sticks in the woods and creating fun patterns in yarn on a hot summer afternoon. 

I was curious if anyone on etsy was making God's Eyes and a few people are. Camp Smarty Pants, from Portland, has the cutest God's Eye pins in her shop.

I also came across the artist Jay Mohler,  from Myrtle Beach, making these amazing, breath taking Ojos de Dois. He has been making them since the 1960s and has a shop full of beautiful God's Eyes.If anyone has changed my opinion about the simple nature that this craft can be, it is Jay. What intricate work!
