You cannot walk very far in Turkey without running into an evil eye, the nazarlık. It has long been relied upon for defense and protection against misfortune. The more common evil eyes appear in a traditional blue color, but really they come in all shapes and sizes. This red evil eye is set in the traditional sphere, set off by a silver runic charm.
Both the glass and charm are attached to a blue wax cotton rope by nautical knots. The charm comes in its own woven pouch that can be reused for spices or even scenting your cupboard with lavender.You can hang this on your rearview mirror, attach it to your bag or lay it on your entranceway table as a charm. It also makes a great gift for someone you care about.
