In Turkish culture, the evil eye symbol (nazar boncugu) is believed to be a kind of supernatural force that casts or reflects a malevolent gaze back-upon those who wish harm upon others.
While the concept and its significance vary widely among different cultures, it is mainly a protective charm.
A typical nazar boncugu in Turkey is made of handmade glass featuring concentric circles or teardrop shapes in dark blue, white, light blue and black, occasionally with a yellow/gold edge.
Ours is a blown glass with very little yellow shade in it. Embellished with 3 silver beads as a hanging decor.
