Boho… Krobo Style June 30, 2012

Last weekend, there was a fantastic blog party featuring the design inspirations from this new book:  Bohemian-Inspired Jewelry. A brain child of Lorelei Eurto and Erin Siegel, with many other jewelry artists contributing amazing projects. I ordered the book from Interweave and just received it this week. Yeah!  I highly recommend it if you’d like to learn more about how to incorporate and  combine a variety of fibers,ribbons, textiles, metals, chains, components, and beads into your work.

It’s jam-packed with great directions for fun, funky, fabulous earring, necklace, and bracelet projects to make or be inspired by.  Hard to choose my first one.  I really like this knotted cord design as a basis to show off more of the colorful Krobo recycled glass beads from Ghana with a red polymer clay pendant.  I really liked the way the pendant is attached with the little accent fringe of beads. The knotting technique was easy to pick up and choosing a light tan waxed cotton cord gives these beads a chance to shine.  A great summertime necklace.

    I love the cotton cord. I’m really into comfort, and this necklace has it all. Color, variety, whimsey, plus comfort!

  3. Hi, Shel…yes, I’m excited to try out more of their great designs. So many to choose from.
    Hey, Donna…Thanks for the comment. The cord was very easy to use and I also love the open, airy look of it in this necklace.
