Nazar (Evil eye) Village

Posted on January 07 2016

Nazarköy (Evil eye village) is located in the Ege region of Turkey about 18 miles away from Izmir.

Although famous for it's glass evil eye beads with the locals, it still remains unknown to foreign tourists. As you wander through the village you will see the local ladies creating evil eye accessories and craftsman continuing to practice the tradtional techniques of creating recycled glass beads in their workshops using handmade wood burning furnaces. Unfortunately as the times have changed and cheap mass produced items taking over the market only 5 evil eye craftsman remain.
