The Nazar Boncuğu, or “eye bead”, is a part of an amuletic and artistic practice from Turkey, Greece, Persia, India, Pakistan and the surrounding regions. It’s design has changed little over thousands of years, dating back to the earliest traditions of glass moulding. Despite persecution, the tradition of glassmaking has survived, to ensure that the evil eye can continue to perform its protective service over the people who carry it on their person.
