Hello, everyone! Welcome to Weekly Wednesday! This week a have a little treat (or what I consider a treat) for you. I love color, and I love uniqueness, so it only seems right that I do something boho. I could feature boho stuff for days, because I love it so much. There are so many different aspects of jewelry that are incorporated into each and every bohemian piece, and that's why I love them--you get something unique that not everybody and his brother is going to have. I've tried to gather a wide range of products, but narrowing it down was tough. Tough, I tell ya! Anyway, I have more for later boho posts ;)
Item #1 is from AraigneeGypsie
I love me some layered jewelry, especially the kind that incorporates a variety of textures like this one. It has double dark brown leather cords, and antique brass chain, and a hand-woven wool bracelet. The colors are also a nice blend--khaki, red/orange (persimmon), green, and blue--and would be great for any season. The tassel is also a nice touch that completes the boho feel.
Item #2 is from StayGoldMaryRose
The first thing that caught my attention about this necklace was the absolutely stunning shade of blue. It reminds me of the blue glass you see sometimes, especially in antique stores. It's one of my favorite shades of blue. The spearhead is made of blue and white china--it's a pattern called 'Willow.' The design has a very tribal feel to it, so it would definitely compliment the boho style, or well, any style really. Shaping china is a very tedious task because you don't want to break it--I've tried to make stuff like this, but my patience ends up wearing too thin haha. The pendant is attached to a long antique copper chain measuring 3.78 inches (35 cm) from neck to pendant (the pendant itself measures 2.16 inches x 1.96 inches). I know this has nothing to do with the jewelry itself--it's more of a personal tidbit from my first trip to Europe. The town the shop is located in is Brighton, England. It was one of our stops, but we didn't get to spend nearly as much time there as we would have liked! There is next time, though! (Possibly for the honeymoon).
Item #3 is from AllieCatDesignStudio
Can you say, "Color?!" The mix of seed beads on this bracelet is awesome! They're bright but still very earthy. You've also got a variety of bead shoes to mix things up a bit. This bracelet is pretty much a one-size-fits-all since it's made of memory wire. It expands and contracts back to its original shape, but that doesn't mean you need to go pulling on it in every direction. You so get a choice of a little charm--a bell or a heart. I'll have to say that the bell is the cutest of the two. Definitely a versatile piece to have in your collection!
Item #4 is from stellacreations
Get the drool bucket out!! I LOVE this necklace--the colors, the variety of beads, the leather cording--everything! It has wonderful visual texture with the beads as well as the leather cording and is very well balanced. The maker even incorporates sari silk into this piece! I'm not a huge fan of heart charms, but this one is very subtle, so I'm actually liking it. It's so tribal and exactly what I'd think of when I hear 'boho.' It's got all the bells and whistles--even the evil eye and tassels. **Note: This isn't the best picture because it was unavailable when I was typing this up! The maker has many, many, many gorgeous items to see in her shop.
Item #5 is from Gypsymoondesigns
I'm so in love with the patina on this pendant. It always adds a little something extra to a design. It's also not the easiest thing to do when you have a specific color in mind, but it is so worth it in the end. A patina also gives the piece a vintage feel. I've never really thought about layering pendants, but this design does a really good job combining the two. It's definitely a Moroccan style (I would love to go here, too!) and would go great with many colors, especially jewel tones.
That's all I have for you all this week, my boho lovelies! I hope you've enjoyed this colorful and unique edition of Weekly Wednesday! I'll be back next week with more fabulous finds for your fabulous selves! Now, make sure to head on over to your favorite handmade site and show some artists some love!
Until next time,
