Publishers Weekly

So what is a "bohemian," anyway? By the looks of this luscious book it is a woman who favors a soft, fluttery style accented with bits of silky ribbon, shiny beads and a supple leather strap or two (50 Shades fans, take note!). Whatever the definition, readers of this book this will find more than four dozen well-planned and clearly explained projects, including bracelets, earrings and necklaces. The projects range from easy to intermediate - there's nothing here that a pair of pliers can't tackle - and are inspired by items from far-flung cultures (saris, batiks, sakuras) and elements of nature (moon, stars, flowers). All the projects incorporate unusual elements - buttons, lace scraps, ceramic letters, leather knots, braid scraps - that surprise and inspire. The technique illustrations are both pretty and illuminating and the photography of the finished projects is both alluring and detailed enough to provide further clarification and direction to the hobbyist. Overall, a lovely addition to a jewelry-maker's library. (May) 2012 Reed Business Information

Editorial Reviews

"The projects in this book may be bohemian-inspired, but they’re more haute than hippie. Jewelry designers Eurto and Siegel work with ribbons and cords in their designs, and the contrast between these softer materials and the beads and stones in their jewelry is a source of inspiration." — Library Journal

"So what is a “bohemian, anyway? By the looks of this luscious book it is a woman who favors a soft, fluttery style accented with bits of silky ribbon, shiny beads and a supple leather strap or two (50 Shades fans, take note!).

The technique illustrations are both pretty and illuminating and the photography of the finished projects is both alluring and detailed enough to provide further clarification and direction to the hobbyist. Overall, a lovely addition to a jewelry-maker’s library." – Publishers Weekly
