Australia Days Etsy Spotlight & Giveaway: Suze Loves The Bohemian Original!


I love The Bohemian Original, it's a fantastic shop filled with beautiful gemstone jewelry.


I like the vibrant colors very much.


The owner, Angela, has a great, unique style.


I love her designs and the materials she uses.


Everything looks cheerful and wonderful.


I asked Angela a few questions to find out more about her and her shop:

1) Where did you learn your craft?

I worked at a bead store many years ago and picked up some basic necklace stringing skills from my co-workers, every technique I have picked up since then has been self taught by watching tutorials, reading lots of books and magazines, and bucket loads of trial and error at my work bench! These days I am venturing into metalsmithing and I can't wait to create more beautiful pieces in precious metals.


2) How did your Etsy adventure start?

I discovered Etsy in 2012 and opened my first little online store with only a few items. I got really busy with my studies (fashion design) and a day job and sadly stopped making jewellery for a while. When I moved to Western Australia a few months ago I started creating again and did a major overhaul of my Etsy store with tons of all new designs, and there are still loads more to come!


3) How would you describe your style?

I create in a distinctly bohemian/gypsy style. I love making jewellery that inspires a feeling of whimsy and wanderlust, and using natural elements such as cotton and hemp cords, seashells, crystals and gemstones. My creations are intended to be transitional pieces; they can be styled both casually and formally, so you get more versatility from your jewellery.


4) What inspires you?

A lot of my designs are inspired by colourful and vibrant cultures around the world - lately I have been especially influenced by Mexico and the stunning patterns and colours of Native American culture. 


5) What is your signature piece?

I have a few signature styles, my macrame crystal pouch necklaces and tassel necklaces are just a couple. I prefer to make each and every piece of jewellery a one of a kind design so even though I employ the same techniques in a lot of my pieces, each one has its own distinct style. I believe everybody should have at least one piece of jewellery that is completely unique to them!


6) What are your plans for the future?

I plan to expand my label, collaborate with more bloggers and stylists to create some amazing media, and to continue my online sales with vision to open a boutique in the near future!


I love the combination of techniques and materials.


Everything in this shop looks amazing.


There's also a really good international shipping rate.


The gemstones Angela uses are stunning.

Australia Days Etsy Spotlight & Giveaway: Suze Loves 6 Maniac Lemurs!


I love 6 Maniac Lemurs, a shopped filled with beautiful and original jewelry.


The owner, Mirela, is a graphic artist who loves to make illustrations.


I greatly admire her creativity.


She sells pieces for both men and women. The best thing about this is that they also could be matched.


I like her ideas very much.


The 6 in 6 Maniac Lemurs stands for June and the rest of the shop name is an anagram of Mirela's maiden name. 


Mirela has a fascinating, distinctive own style.


She uses all kinds of methods and materials to get the results she wants.


The jewelry is bold and colorful and there are a lot of great statement pieces for sale in this shop.


I find the designs intriguing and pretty at the same time, which I think is a great combination.


Mirela finds her inspirations in a lot of things around her. For example, there's a gorgeous Australia inspired collection.


In the description of the items you can find how Mirela has made the pieces.


I love her versatility and skill.


Check out these wonderful pieces.


You will love this shop!


Mirela is originally from Romania where she went to the Academy of Fine Arts.


In 2008 she moved to Australia and there she continued working on her techniques. 


You can find more information about her on her website.


Make sure you visit the Girls' Corner. I spent hours enjoying myself there.
