The hand-beaded eyes of this Nazar choker are set off against beads of lapis lazuli and pearl.
For this piece Cleopatra’s Bling collaborates with a women’s collective in the Black Sea, to support them in continuing to both practice and teach their traditional artform. For more information on the incredible beaders we work with, take a look at our Black Sea Women’s Collective collection.
The Nazar is a symbol traditional to Anatolia and its surrounds. It represents the “evil eye” which when worn guards against covetous or ill-meaning looks from others. The blue of the eye is traditionally associated with magic and mischief in Turkey, and holds great power.
