Nazar Necklace


Nazar Necklace


OOAK Jewelry by Claire Sommers Buck

Nazar means ‘evil eye’ in Turkish. The evil eye is a curse or legend believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when they are unaware. Talismans created to protect against the evil eye are also frequently called “evil eyes” and in Turkey, come in the form of handmade glass charms. The Nazar necklace is our interpretation of an ‘evil eye’ protective charm, featuring a beautiful antique blue lapis lazuli cabochon on a textured brass pendant.

*please note, because of the natural quality of the lapis lazuli gemstones, color and texture of each stone may vary.

  • Oxidized brass, sterling silver & lapis lazuli
  • 18” oxidized sterling silver chain
  • Pendant measures ~½” long x ¾” wide
  • Designed & handmade by Claire Buck in Austin, TX

As a jewelry artist, I am intent on making pieces that are timeless in form, comfortable to wear and long lasting. Inspired by my love of the natural world as well as folk and ethnic craft designs, my work seeks to adorn in an authentic and genuine way. My creative process is often stirred by a simple idea or shape. What follows is the design and fabrication of the jewelry. Throughout this process, I use traditional jewelry fabrication and casting techniques to carefully create each piece from start to finish. The materials I use include brass, silver and gold, along with precious and semi-precious stones. Although I produce multiples within my jewelry line, each piece is slightly imperfect revealing their individuality and personal story. All of my work is proudly produced in my quaint studio in East Austin, TX.

Thank you for stopping by!
