Bohemian Inspired Jewelry is both beautiful and informative. The photos and of course, the jewelry in them are absolutely gorgeous! As you turn the pages, you'll be wanting to reach out and hold the jewelry in your own hands. The instructions cover everything you need to know—from all the basics of using leather, ribbon, and cords, up to more advanced and complex techniques—but they are all so well explained that anyone, even a jewelry maker who's just starting out, could jump right in and be able to follow any one of the examples and get fantastic results.
If you've seen any of my recent jewelry you'll know I love macrame and tassels and have just started adding more fiber and cords to my designs. So, my review really wouldn't be complete without making a design from the book. I couldn't pick just ONE favorite, so I pulled together some elements from a few different ones and here's what I created:
I used hemp cord, lace, czech crystals, my own ridged rounds, antique brass findings, and an assortment of seed beads.
I had SO much fun!
I'll definitely be recommending this book to everyone I know who loves jewelry making!
