Review:

"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. "
