Bohemian Twig Fashion. Marukiko, one of Etsy's hand-makers, makes these beautiful hand-painted boho twig necklaces. Love at first sight. I love rustic, not so polished jewelry that reminds us of nature & earth. Twigs are now finding their voice in boho fashion.

Boho way of recycling trees. The beads on this bracelet are made from paper, and glazed with some kind of varnish or sealer. Nail polish works, too. I like the mix up of paper beads with sequin & glass seed beads. Very authentic.
I wish I knew the original maker of this bohemian bracelet. Alas!

The woven rope bracelet above is from an online shop called The Vitrine. They feature the products & creations of several handmade artists.

I love the blending of woven rope & chain (below). Then there’s the tassel, a beloved jewelery element of mine. Nice design.

Vintage Necklace from the Levant: When global vintage meets my heritage

Vintage Levant: Karboojeh Vintage Necklace with handmade Crochet and vintage beads - By Karboojeh Jewelry

Handmade, vintage, boho, necklace from the Levant. The center glass piece spells: Allah. It sits on a handmade crochet flower, with vintage beads that used to be part of an old pair of earrings. A golden vintage clip-on earring, snuggles nicely below the blue glass focal piece.

Vintage Levant: Karboojeh Vintage Necklace with handmade Crochet and vintage beads - By Karboojeh Jewelry

In Ottoman times, wearing the name ‘Allah’ was for protection and remembrance of the love of God. This necklace has something holy about it, it needs to be treated with utmost respect.

The rustic earth-loving boho. 'The Rustica' is a new handmade boho bracelet by Karboojeh Jewelry. It comes with a pair of earrings made with natural wooden seeds.
This is the most close-to-earth design I have made up until now, it works with every boho wardrobe, and it’s neutral, no pop of color, just a calm way to run a bohemian look with the least bit of fuss.

Handmade clutch with a vintage key as clasp. I just came across this beautiful clutch, handmade by Urban Heirlooms.

I can’t but admire the genius idea of reusing, re-purposing, and bringing back to life a collection of vintage keys that they use in all their accessories (bags, key-chains, necklaces).

Boho glam with a Tassel. Global Glam beaded bracelets. This is  Juicy Couture’s boho-chic twist on a bracelet. Isn’t she a beauty? Last year I used to wear my Sufi rosary as a necklace, and of course it had a tassel, and everyone looked at it as if it was an odd thing to wear. Now, it’s fashionable, and it’s OK to wear tassels. That’s so unfortunate. People wait for designer labels and the fashion industry to Okay their cultural aesthetic, and until it is fashionably recognized you remain an outcast.

Tassels are a part and parcel of my culture, like many other beautiful  things (harem pants, kaftans, etc). Only when the fashion industry comes and  creates a replica of our heritage do people accept it as ‘modern’, cool,  and ‘fashion forward’. They don’t have the courage to look into their  own culture and heritage and appreciate the beauty they have. Anything that their ancestors used to wear is ‘backwards’, unless fashion comes and declares it ‘inspiring’. This only  tells you, people are sheep, and they move with the herd.

A trio of handmade boho bracelets

Karboojeh Handmade Jewelry - '2 Teals' boho bracelet

Blue boho bracelets. The theme of these handmade bracelets isThe Sky loves the Sea”. Together they can mix colors to create a canvas of blue, turquoise and green-blue on the sea surface. Both Sky & Sea are God’s ancient 3-in-1 brush, paint, and canvas.

Karboojeh Handmade Jewelry - '3 Blues' boho bracelet

Here in the Levant and the Mediterranean, the sea is really blue. I saw the ocean when I was in England, and it was grey, so I guess the Mediterranean has a special glow to it. I guess Italians would agree :)

Karboojeh Handmade Jewelry - 'Mauve & Teal' boho bracelet

These bracelets are handmade by Karboojeh Jewelry using beads that remind us of the color blue in several possible marriages of color and variation.

Visions from The Levant: Charms on a leather boho bracelet

The Levant' Boho Beaded handmade bracelet by Karboojeh Jewelry

My boho bracelet carries memories from the Levant. A cowrie seashell from the ‘Barjees’ fabric-based board game (famous in Turkey, Syria, and the Levant), nestles happily on a leather chord, next to wooden and seed glass beads. The relatively over-sized clasp is my favorite signature item used in most of my handmade bracelets. In the picture’s center, the natural-looking wooden bead reminds me of cardamom, often used to aromatize bitter-sweet Turkish coffee.

Beads of love. In my free time, I make jewelry from beads and metallic findings, mainly. I try to mix and match colors in a way that reflects a bohemian, earthly feel. Even when I use glitter, or gold, I try to bring them down to a more natural look by mixing them up with seashells, twine, or something completely boho.

DIY: Boho hair comb

P.S I Made This - Hair comb

A touch of boho hair-love. It’s quite possible to transform one’s whole looks with a comb like this, especially if you keep on changing the fabric/ribbon you weave into the comb. I never liked those combs. Now I do.

Boho Touch. This is a good day to discover bohemian-looking jewelry on the net. And I did!
Catchall Jewelry makes tribal ear-wraps out of brass wire… and guess what? ‘You don’t need any piercings to wear them,  there is a wire in the back that wraps around your ear and keeps the  ear-wrap in place,’ the artist tells us on her website, Junk.
I’m particularly interested in the intricate detailing of these ear-wraps; very delicate, and absolutely beautiful.

By Way of The Belt

Belt from Friend in Fashion Blog

What a neat and fashionable way to tuck in a belt!

A nice double-take on belt-plus-scarf ‘belting’.

Nice way of handling a thick leather belt. And why not have the buckle sideways?

via I heart It

I think this one and the one below are the same. But it’s nice to see it on two different belt types. Gives a better visual.

I’m really lovin’ the braided belt.
