Be prepared to do some drooling.  LylaSupplies has some of the coolest Turkish jewelry findings I have seen.  The owner, Christine Demirbas, a British ex-patriate living there, handpicks all of them. She has been living there for nearly two decades so one assumes she knows where the best manufacturers are!

These selections are unique and exotic including the distinctive nazar boncugu or blue evil eye beads which have been worn as protective amulets for thousands of years.  They are still handmade by Turkish glass artisans. 

Nazar Boncugu or evil eye beads

LylaSupplies is a large store worth the browse.  Also check out Christine's companion store, NazarLuckDesign for inspirational designs.
