Bold Turkmen Tribal Bilezik Bracelet with Red Beads

Cuff Bracelets such as this are classic Turkmen Tribal Jewelry called Qasli Bilezik; each decorative band is called a qoshmah. This large Bilezik has 6 large red beads set in raised bezels intended to ward off the evil eye. 

A row of 5 claws on each side are said to protect and invigorate the wearer, while shielding the delicate wrist area from injury. The gilded patterns on the surface are a typical of the Turkmen Tekke tribe from Central Asia.

This is a relatively new handcrafted bracelet that is thick-walled and sturdy - it does not bend. The wrist gap is wide, so a large wrist is recommended.

For more information on Turkmen jewelry, please see the links at the top of the Tribal Muse homepage for "About Tribal Jewelry" and "Blog."
