Iyi Talih Necklace


Iyi Talih means "good fortune" in Turkish, and matches the delicate style, available in red, of this thinner choker band. You may also like our the Büyük Talih Necklace - meaning "great fortune", with a thicker, blue band.

These items are handcrafted over 8 weeks, and are therefore available for pre-order over this time period.

Over thousands of years of women’s culture, symbols are laid upon symbols. As these symbols grow in number, they melt and morph into one another. Just as a single thread alone is weak, but when bound with others becomes strong, so too can solitary symbols be lost or forgotten. However, as they are shared, reimagined, and used, their strength is rejuvenated. The items from this collection are inspired by the nomadic cultures of Turkey where, in small villages by the Black Sea, artisans create beaded masterpieces that have influenced, and been used in, items in this collection.

Design begets talisman, and talisman begets ritual. Each new amulet that is created becomes like a shining bead, which neighbours the woman’s culture that came before it, and supports the culture of she who comes after. So it is with the Talih Necklace, which overflows in its joyous abundance. Layers and layers of rich Turkish symbology are strung togethers, like the jewels of a necklace, ricocheting off one another and generating new meanings.

The nazar, or evil eye, an ancient symbol for warding away dark luck, is paired with the centuries old talisman for good fortune, the horseshoe, inlayed with pure lapis lazuli. These are layered over bright beads, and glistening crescent embellishments. In Turkish tâlih kelimesinin is the “word of fortune”. This necklace is offered up as a startlingly bold hope for the good fortune of the wearer, and the world. Vintage fabric is sourced in the grand bazaar of Istanbul by Olivia.

Your unique piece of jewellery by Cleopatra's Bling has been handmade using traditional jewellery techniques and exceptional materials.

As we hand craft each piece, slight variations are to be expected and are what make our designs one-of-a-kind.

Please be gentle with your treasures and do not apply lotions and perfume while wearing your gold plated pieces. Please avoid water when wearing gold plated jewellery.

Gold has a tendency to scratch, so extra care should be taken when wearing and cleaning to maintain quality and appearance.

Sterling silver that is worn regularly requires less care, so we encourage you to wear your silver treasures daily.

I hope my creations bring you luck.
