In 2012 we took a family trip to Turkey, where we visited Istanbul, the Cappadocia region, and the west coast Izmir province. I loved checking out the incredible bazaars everywhere we went, all of which were filled with sparkling glass Evil Eyes. Technically, they are called "nazur" and used to protect one against the evil eye. I so fell in love with these, I bought lots for friends and family and even purchased fabric with this motif. Evil Eyes can be found throughout Turkey, Greece and the Mid East. Hand painted 16.5" x 8"
