As a common belief these blue beads are used to ward off evil eyes. :) All of them are handmade. Very primitive glass ovens are used in production of this blue beads. In time the 'masters' of this production became very rare. Apart from the belief these are nice ornaments. Tanju

Not an ornament for me, but great work with glass, and the taking of this photo. I like the flowers placed there.

A really unusual but very effective shot, Tanju.

I don't believe in superstition Tanju. Fine composition though.

Every home should have one LOL

I like the vibrance of the ornament against the softer muted surroundings

If any one of you goes to Turkey, do not forget to buy one. I have one of them, Tanju. It is very nice to get this shot.

These symbols of glass are taken very seriously in Turkey. I have them in various parts of our flat in the car in my wallet you name it most Turkish people believe very strongly about these. Nice image by the way well composed. Well done.
