Boho details: Tassels, pom-poms, patterns & beads

Wire-lashing jewelry

The method behind what’s boho. This photo is for those who make jewelry, like myself, with a bit of an insider look on “technique.”

Packaging Inspiration from Anthroplogie. An enclosure of generously gilded leather enveloping: hand-bound pages wrapped by a tassel cord.

Anthro tasseled pin necklaceTasseled Boho Necklace. Anthropologie is now posting this necklace on their website, and it is an absolute darling.

I posted an older tutrorial about making your own tassel on my other blog, karboojeh.wordpress.com.

There, you can also find a little story about the origin of tassels, and how it relates to my culture & spirirtual heritage.

Tassels are everywhere in the Levant. They are part of daily life, rather than being a fashion trend that comes & goes.

They adorn prayer rosaries, and go all the way to decorate curtains, cushions, and so many other decorative items.

Now they are on necklaces and bracelets; which is not their usual place.

My personal belief, without really researching my claims, is that Ottomans spread ‘the tassel’ in the world!

I love tassels!

Let’s not forget to go back to wire-lashing, and again it’s a necklace from Anthropologie…

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.

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.

Karboojeh Handmade: The Blue Mediterranean collection

Karboojeh Blue Collection Handmade Chain Necklaces - By Karboojeh Jewelry

Blue Boho-chic Jewelry. The Mediterranean is a melting ‘sea’ for civilizations that have their own interpretation of the color blue. Blue is most prevalent in ethnic jewelry that hails from places like Morocco, Istanbul and even Sham Sherif.

Karboojeh 'One Blue' Chain Necklace - Handmade by Karboojeh Jewelry

In this collection, I share a number of necklaces handmade by Kaboojeh Jewelry, in an attempt to modernize and enliven a culture of ‘blue.’ I have deep respect for everything old, so my attempts here are merely a form of self-expression. I’m simply not good at mimic-ing other people’s work.

Karboojeh Sham Blue Chain Necklace - Handmade by Karboojeh Jewelry

The first necklace is a Karboojeh ‘One Blue’ Chain Necklace, followed by Karboojeh Sham Blue Chain Necklace, and the one below is called, Hand of Fatima pendant necklace by Karboojeh Jewelry.

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.
