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.
Vintage nomadic boho: Mirrors on Pillows. Gypsy belt from an Indian accessories tradition.
Boho Cushions for Comfort. Indian mirrored cushions.
Anthropologie ethnic cushion. Beautiful colors & prints.
Pom Pom beauty. A fusion pom-pom necklace marrying different jewelry-making techniques, found at Anthropologie.
Tasseled Boho Necklace. Anthropologie is now posting this necklace on their website, and it is an absolute darling.
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…
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.
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.
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.
