Nazar Boncuk, the Evil Eye Amulet
For hundreds of years the 'Evil Eye', also known as Nazar Boncuk in Turkey, was used as an amulet to ward off evil intentions such as envy and misfortune. It is still commonly seen in Turkey in offices and homes, and is used in jewellery, including for babies, on vehicles, doors, horses and even cell phones.
It is typically hand made from glass, and is composed of concentric circles or droplet shapes – from inside out: dark blue (or black), light blue, white and black and is sometimes referred to as the blue eye.
The String of Seven Elephants
The string of seven Elephants combined with the Nazar Boncuk symbolises a successful outcome for all your efforts.
