"Nazar Boncuk" the Evil Eye Amulet from Turkey. Ever watchful for envy or resentment, these amulets protect the wearer from negative energy. In Turkey, a nazar boncuk of handblown glass might be pinned to babies clothing, swinging from a rear view mirror, or placed in the foundation of a new building. If they crack or break, then it's time to get a replacement! Often seen in Spain and Latin American as well, to ward off "mal de ojo."
The small evil eye ornament is hand blown blue glass with a string attached to it for hanging. Measures approximately 1 1/2" wide. From TURKEY.
