This silver octopus ring with shiny glass eyes is one of the few things, besides books, that I bought for myself in Turkey last month.
The Ortaköy district of Istanbul has a wide opening where several restaurants facing the Bosphorus are lined up. The narrow streets leading to the waterfront are always crowded with vendors selling mostly jewelry. We went there one day to have lunch and also to look for trinkets. Trying the stuff on is, of course, half of the fun.
One of those street vendors was offering many unusual rings. I was looking for a snail ring, but had to settle for another mollusk.
Watch out for those tentacles.
