I used to have an "evil eye", purchased in Turkey (probably in the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul)on a charm bracelet. Unfortunately the bracelet was stolen many years ago. I still think about it, it contained tiny treasures from my first trip abroad, all priceless to me.

This scene could have taken place a hundred years ago. I love the movement and color in the photo.

Ann, it will not be the same as yours but I'll be more than happy to send an evil eye to you; just e-mail me your post address.

Thanks a million Tr3nta.

Thanks for your precious remarks Petrea. They still use the authentic process to produce the evil eye stones and these kind of work places are on the edge of extinction.

Then it's especially important that you document them with your photographs, Selim. This shot is more than a document, of course. It's an artistic piece. Anyone would want to be documented this way!
