HOW TO:

THE HANDMADE NAZAR NECKLACE COLLECTION

A cherished Turkish talisman reimagined with a little handmade love, Oddbird style

Throughout Turkey, the 'Nazar Boncuk' is a symbol that is culturally recognized as the eye of the Divine and the protector of whom it adorns, a time-honored talisman that is believed to be a guardian against the negative vibrations of the world around us.

For most Turkish people, the Nazar Boncuk (God's Eye) serves as an indispensable accessory and one, our founder, Ceren, and her sister Hazal grew up intrinsically connected to.

While in the throws of these unprecedented pandemic times, the sisters would find themselves saying

'I think the world needs a little Nazar boncuk around its neck right about now!"

And after a year of developing the idea, the Oddbird Co. Nazar Boncuk collection was born. A little good luck charm to keep us all thriving, all connected, all guarded with the comfort of tradition.

Made lovingly by hand, in collaboration with local silversmiths in Izmir, Turkey, our Nazar Boncuk collection comes in two beautiful designs and finishes.

Available in a circular shape featuring a stunning 18 ct gold plated finish or a patinaed Sterling Silver square design, both perfected with a hand-laid Turkish Turquoise Miné Stone.

Each talisman is accompanied by a beautiful matching chain and jewelry bag made from the offcuts of our handwoven fabrics.
