I spy with my little (Turkish) eye

The "Nazar Boncuk" (bon-JOOK) has always been synonymous with Turkish culture and style.  A recognized charm across Eastern Europe and Western Asia, these handmade glass beads are meant to bring good fortune and ward off bad spirits. Nazars can be spotted all over Turkey - hung above doorways, dangling from rearview mirrors and, of course, worn as jewelry.

As a small token of my appreciation, each Bahar Jewelry purchase comes wrapped with a nazar bead. Tuck it away in your purse to bring a little luck or rock it as a stylish bracelet!

Bol sans, Bahar
