The ancient concept of the “evil eye” – which turns upon those things which are happy and joyous – is part of the traditional belief system of a vast swathe of the world. The Nazar bead was created by artisans as a way of warding against the eye, through the concept of similia similibus – that which is like the dark thing will repel it. The evil eye is worn to shield against malevolent forces. The Tek Nazar earrings have a single strand of glass evil eyes set below an enameled stud. They watch over the wearer with protective strength.
Handmade glass beads from Turkey, enamel work, 1.5 18K micron gold plating over nickel and lead free bronze. Total length 4cm. Dimension of the eye is 1.5cm x 1cm. Each glass bead is 5mm.
