Bold Turkmen Tribal Double-Row Qasli Bilezik Bracelet - Irregular

This large contemporary Turkmen (Turkoman) qasli bilezik bracelet was handcrafted by tribal jewelry artisans living in Peshawar along the Afghan border.  

Bilezik bracelets are notoriously thick-walled, made of two layers fused together with a hollow space in between. This bracelet has 2 ornately embellished rows - a traditional Turkmen bilezik design.

The repeating triangle motif on the gilded surface is characteristic of the jewelry from neighboring Kazakhstan. Each end terminals has 5-claws that are said to be imbued with  amuletic powers for protecting the wearer from harm. 

The 6 red glass beads are the color of carnelians, shaped like eyes and sitting in raised bezels to ward off the evil eye. 

The opening for the wrist is large, and some of the red beads have clouding around the edges. Because of this, the price has been deeply discounted for clearance.
