Evil Eye Charm, LCP brought to you by The Guide Istanbul
The rounded blue nazar boncuğu or evil eye is a common sight in Turkey and surrounding regions. In fact, it would be highly unusual to go a day without seeing one attached to a bag, dangling from a bracelet or hanging from a doorway. Instead of the traditional circle, this particular piece is a blue cube with a watchful eye on all four sides. Polyester white rope runs through the handmade glass bead and are bound by nautical knots. The additional silver-plated charm will also work in conjunction with the eye to ensure your safety. Thanks to the particular knotting, the piece can be hung from either end.
Whether you believe in the power of this watchful eye, the quality of the craft is worth admiring alone. Hang this on your rearview mirror or attach it to your bag. The blue and white colors make it ideal when traveling by boat. It also makes a great gift for someone you care about.The charm comes in its own woven pouch that can be reused for spices or even scenting your cupboard with lavender.
